by Oliver Noah Johnson about a year ago in heartbreak

Escaping an abusive relationship


You thought you could change me

Tame me and keep me yours

You left me in the dog house

Tied me up to keep me away

You didn’t know I’d knaw my way out

Dig a hole and run away

You whistle for me to come back

You miss my cries

But I'm not yours anymore

Suffer on your own

Be angry

Be loud

Now you know

There is no escaping this

You're locked in hell

And I threw away the key

This is the turnaround

You’ve become something I hate

A distant memory

A long lost friend

Stay away

Stay away
