via Daily Prompt: Swallow


I can’t swallow anymore of your lies
I am finally thru with you
I can’t believe the things you said
And what you made me do.

I want to run, I want to hide
I can’t look into a mirror
Don’t want to have to face myself
I need my vision clearer.

What a fool I have been
To think you really cared
You take from anyone you can
You love the chase, the dare.

Like a hunted, wounded animal
You trapped me in the corner
You stripped me down, you used me up
It was easy, you’re a charmer.

A narcissist, a maniac
A ruthless psychopath
You watched me crumble before your eyes
You just stood there and you laughed.

What could I have been thinking
When I got involved with you?
None of the promises you made
Were ever real or true.

Now that I am onto you
I can begin to finally heal
I won’t be getting back with you
No matter what I feel.
