You were full of highs and lows,

and I pretended that I didn’t mind,

but the truth is you made me dizzy

with your constant changes.

I was good before I found you.

Then you came in like a whirlwind

of excitement and sex and pretty words

I was so desperate to hear.

I ignored the warnings, the red flags;

wanted to believe you were different

so I stood in the center of the storm

and tried to endure the weather.

Truth is, though, I knew I couldn’t bear it,

I didn’t know how to step away from you,

and I’m happier without your chaos.

I wish that was harder to say.
