letting you go

i was so blind to see where i wanted us to be. you took me higher and higher
then back down to low. then we made love the way i love it slow.you couldn’t deny the addiction of the drugs or the booze. i tried to change you to make it right. but every time i tried to tell you it was over we wound up in a fight. letting you go was what i had to do, telling you your 2 problems were not going to be mine too. then the beatings came and why you lost control. i feel as if leaving you was good because now i know
my heart and soul. you will never hurt me again because now i have a man who really loves me,and we rarely fight. he’s not into drugs or getting drunk all the time.
now i can sleep well tonight just knowing i wrote this rhyme.
