You tear away at the best of me
Cloud my eyes and all I see is you
Nothing else in front of me comes through
You are the demon inside of me
Ruining the love I found
Shoving him to the ground
I yell, I scream, but for what reason?
How can it be that I can’t see him?
It’s you, anger, the snake that you are
You wrap yourself around my heart
You come back with memories
Triggers I forgot I had
From the loss of my absent dad
You find my fears and turn them into you
I beat myself until I’m black and blue
And I’m losing him as I fight against you
Because how can he understand?
That you are just a manifestation
A creation made by my depression
So go away and leave us be
Don’t do it just for me
Do it for the man who loves me
Despite the effect you have on me
I plead that you uncoil from my heart
Stop tearing my life, my love, my world apart
Retreat from my life and set me free
Only then can I truly be me.
