No Strings Attached- An Ode to Losing Yourself in a Relationship

Webster tells us that Codependency: is defined as a psychological condition or a relationship in which a person is controlled or manipulated by another who is affected with a pathological condition (as in an addiction to alcohol); In broader terms, it refers to the dependence on the needs of or control of another. It also often involves placing a lower priority on one's own needs, while being excessively preoccupied with the needs of others.

Mixed up, Confused...a love no longer alive

Turn My World With Your Love

I fell so hard,

in love with you.

***

I must have

BUMPED MY HEAD

somewhere along the way,

If not the

WHOLE WAY DOWN.

***

To think that you can,

Turn my world,

And all I've ever known,

UPSIDE DOWN,

INSIDE OUT.

***

I must have been BLIND,

When I met you.

But now I simply choose to

PRETEND I can't see.

***

As though I am your PUPPET.

ENCORE,

Pulling my strings,

Knowing what to do....

***

WEAKNESS,

Falling victim.

***

As you become my new ADDICTION.

N' the old DRUG,

I thought I'd kicked.

***

I give you EVERYTHING

That I used to Work so hard,

To keep for myself.

***

And now,

I have NOTHING Left to give.

***

But you have plenty for me...

Lies,

Broken promises.

***

STARVING For your attention.

I will say,

I will do ANYTHING

For just one TOUCH.

***

So many failed attempts.

You say I'm WORTHLESS,

Not good enough.

***

You have the control.

You're the one to say,

YES,

and the one to tell me,

NO.

***

It seems I've lost MYSELF,

Trying to become,

A part of YOU.

***

I don't know who I am,

ANYMORE.

***

Did I ever?

I've Got No Strings To Hold Me Down
