Toxic

You deserve much better,
make no mistake.
Quiet your tongue
so his world does not shake
.

He thinks he rules the world,
pathetic fool,
hides behind you,
while pretending to rule
.

A love forced to abide,
emotional hinge.
Insecure boy,
actions make you cringe
.

Longed for a prince charming,
received a toad,
untie your hands,
embrace the open road
.

You sure deserve better,
open your eyes,
forbidden fruit,
has glued you to his side
.

One day you will wake up,
and finally see,
love you once gave,
served to turn your own key
.

You deserve so much more,
feel love within,
embrace your worth
,
experience more wins.

Allow your reflection
to expose your soul,
drive intentions,
regain your own control
.
