You deserve much better,
do not doubt your mistake.
Stare serves as steel fetters,
his presence, your earthquake.

He controls your small world,
plays you like a true fool,
temperament makes minds swirl,
remember his dumb rules.

Toxic, forced to abide,
strong emotional hinge.
Insecure little boy,
behavior forces cringe.

Confidence appeared grand,
concealed his inner toad,
tightly fastened both hands,
let go to embrace road.

You truly deserve more,
feel clear peace flow within,
let it light up your core,
to experience wins.

True love never dilutes,
open both sleepy eyes,
Moldy, rotten, spoiled fruit,
glued itself to your side.

Aware heart forced to cave
so you finally see,
the pure love you once gave,
served to turn your own key.

Embrace bright reflections,
absorb joy with your soul,
senses show intentions,
power inner control.
