My love is toxic to you

My love is toxic to you
It makes you angry
It gets you down
It makes you say, ‘I don’t need you’
It drives you to yearn to escape our drudgery

My love is toxic to you
It makes you rage against me
It makes you want to scratch your skin
It makes you want to tear out your hair in clumps
It makes you want to scream till your lungs give in

My love is toxic to you
It makes you dream of independence
It makes you despair for simple companionship
It makes you want to run away
It makes you throw to the winds, all prudence

My love is toxic to you
Cos I failed to be the sustenance for your soul to feed
Cos in my heart is the poison of greed
Though in others’ eyes gentleman is my creed
You know my darkest secret deed
So I failed to be the lover you need
