When we becomes me and ours becomes mine.
When I am debased so that you shine.
When my time is yours and your time your own.
When your lie is truth but the truth is unknown.
When people are pawns and you own everything.
When your smile brings anger and fear is king.
When you fight for control, whatever it takes.
When reason is lost for victory’s stakes.
When it’s not your fault on any occasion.
When a simple request feels like an invasion.
When anger is love and love is rebuke.
When what you give is much less than you took.
When mind games and gaslights are what you employ.
When your needs come first at expense of my joy.
When life is a game and you are the player.
When dissection is executed, layer by layer.
When marriage vows are nothing but words on a page.
When love is no more than peace from your rage.
When sadness is joy and upon me you feed.
When you suck my lifeblood to fulfil your need.
When your webs become stifling as around me you weave.
I’ve had all I can take, so you I must leave.
You feel you have won but you’ll lose to my gain.
For when I am free, you’ll rot in your pain.
There’s no way to help and I know I’ll be missed,
Although you’ll not show it, my poor narcissist.
