    Love falsely advertised, maximized
    A genuine illusion
    Before my surprised eyes
    It never specified the side effects of…
    Disrespect, regret, neglect and the want to forget
    Yet I consumed every tablet
    To get that…sensation
    I never received
    But by internal motivation
    By imagined obligation
    I grew conflicted, addicted to being restricted
    Convicted by the determination
    To see what was never there
    He cared, didn’t he?
    Obviously, virtually…right?
    Our love was reality
    Or is that what his medicine
    Imprisoned me to see
    The fog appeared clearly
    But my vision fell and beheld
    This wrong prescription that
    Tarnished my decision
    Postponed by religion and
    Accepted my depression
    His words were supposed to be the
    Pills that healed me but they only
    Drilled through my mentality
    Filled the empty places with more “EMPTY”
    Spilled into my life with messes of tragedy
    But his medicine was suppose to be
    The right kind of remedy, not the enemy
    It was supposed to release me of all insecurity
    I was suppose to
    Be close to
    Being accustomed to
    Being that girl who blossoms
    Everyday by the way his love
    Was instructed to clothe me
    Yet I suffered the turned tables ironically
    For I was the one
    Hearing HIS insecurities
    Trying to make HIM blossom
    While HE was wilted in obscenity
    The clarity is so intense
    I couldn’t focus on the present tense
    So I took more of his medicine
    Hoping for my destiny to commence
    I noticed how my fantasy
    Started to mold me into somebody
    Outside of my happy personality
    Still I took this medicine, wishing
    Vain infatuation would evolve
    Into mutual dedication
    That our short time of conversations
    Would put a wonderful pause on the entire nation
    But as times became fatal
    The medicine bottle lost its label
    Leaving me to not recognize who he
    Or I was because…
    This wasn’t how it was suppose to be
    The same medicine that became dangerous
    Then signed my emotions as “Property of Anonymous”
    A feeling once so gorgeous
    Has led me to a pit that’s bottomless
    But wait…I am a woman
    I am smart, beautiful
    And love being an individual
    Everything that I do
    Going through what women go through
    Shows I am not vulnerable
    The moment I learn and own up to what’s true
    Specializing in dividing myself
    Not with poison
    But with the Most High
    Who’s love never and never will
    Leave me without wings to fly
    Smiling can be so hard
    And sometimes it’s so easy to cry
    But learning is gradual
    Life is special and
    My God is Eternal
    Hmmm, that’s plenty of medicine
    To heal the pain I was so deep in
    I tip the poison pills into the drain
    Glad that my life didn’t follow them
