I GAVE UP

We broke up
Me, myself & I, weren’t working, the relationship
‘Twas too toxic I gave up

Tired of picking me up
Too many fights, l couldn’t keep up
So we broke up, ’twas too toxic I gave up

I thought about me & clearly I couldn’t cope
I had to put myself first, I needed to escape
So we broke up, ’twas too toxic I gave up

All bent out of shape
Barely sane, I ran for sanity, ’twas my last hope
So we broke up, ’twas too toxic I gave up

The tag of war in my head had to stop
I knew the only way for the madness to stop
Was break up, ’twas too toxic I gave up

For me, the ego, I had to drop
I had to be kind to myself, for the demons to stop
I stopped myself from fighting me, we broke up
We had to, ’twas too toxic I gave up
