Are you upset because you feel that you gave too much, darling?
Too much love and affection, only to end in rejection?
Too much energy and time, too much of your body and mind, did you spend too many of your dimes?
Too many gifts, too many kisses?
You were too much for me
I risked my life for you, with every imposed act of unprotected sex
Your arms were prison bars to me, your body was a wall I couldn’t make fall
Finally free with the help of geography, I set to work separating you from me
I told you so many times that your love was toxic for me
You cared only for yourself, I was an object on your shelf
We both gave up the chance to be with dozens of other lovers
I gave you the best years of my life and you riddled them with strife
I thank you for all of that, even though being trapped in an unhealthy relationship damn near killed me
You were my drinking buddy and my drunk enemy
You never kept the peace for long
A loud grievance about how the world did you wrong was perpetually erupting
Despite the fact that you were a spoiled, silver spoon over-fed blond haired, blue-eyed white American male
Honey, your complaining is still ringing in my ears
You gave me the time of my life, never after
Our friends went out of their way to keep us apart because the damage we caused each other was so painful for them to watch
Our approaches to life are opposite
I ask what I can give
You ask what you can take
No wonder you were so fond of me
You want without end
I could never satisfy you
I am at peace now, and I wish the same for you
I no longer feel torn by my simultaneous love and loathing for you
I feel only grateful to have survived our relationship
It was almost too much
