    I'll turn to stone before I shed another tear
    For the likes of your sorry trifiling behind
    Can't belive I wasted time on your kind
    But I want to make it crystal clear
    That I'm done losing myself to save you
    I bent over backwards giving you your due
    but today I took a good long look in the mirror
    And didn't like the woman that was staring back at me
    How did I fall so far, from royalty to your insignificant doormat
    Can't believe I allow you to take your frustration out on me
    I should of left the very first time your hands touched me in anger
    But instead I stayed, hoping and praying I could be your salvation
    But I know now that you can't heal that doesn't want to be healed
    A long time ago you let your circumstance blacken your soul altogher
    And now you wallow in the pits of your self made hell and depravation
    But I refuse to allow you to steal my soul and entrap me in your private hell
    So I am walking away from you now why I am still capable of doing it on my own
    For the way we're going now one of us is soon to be carried by 6 men in black
    So honey I command you to take you hands off me before that day be today
    Cause one way or another I am leaving this misery right this very minute
    LET GO OF ME, right now before these be the last words we ever exchange
    Oh I see that you think I am playing well the best way is to show you
    Bang, dayum look at what you made me do, Now you lay there dead
    Well I told you it was going to be free today,
    just ddin't know it be like this

    Sadly, sometimes life plays out just like this, because we did lose ourselves to save someone else, thus losing our better judgement in a split second do or die. This one hit like a sledge hammer poetess, wow.

    it's not funny how so many deals with life and some other in the same manner
    but once a long look they have the will to make da change and let go the half-dead
