It wasn't supposed to turn out like this.
Relationships are not supposed to hurt.
I invited you into my life to share,
not to destroy that for which I worked.
Insidious, you crept in and took over,
greedily changing each part
to fit your specific game plan.
You wrought havoc on my heart.
Too late, I noticed the changes
in the universe in which I dwell,
How you realigned the forces
To suit you, put me in hell.
Daily, daily I wonder
How many others have you marred?
Innocents looking for pleasure,
now buried in Heaven's backyard.
I've completely rehashed the events
that put you in my realm,
Just where did I misstep
to let you overwhelm?
How did control abandon
my carefully structured design?
You were an addictive property,
a fix, a hit, a need.
And still, I crave your taste,
on you I could still feed.
Every day I slip past your callings
is one day more that I can live.
That is my satisfaction,
a high you cannot give.
The fault is not a degree
assigned in precise size.
Hindsight is the leveler
it's the only time I'm wise.
