You have been a tyrannical lover
ever since I met you as a friend
my heart bleeds in sadness
I'm now a victim of circumstance

Your sadistic nature of life
has uncloaked your foul love
I'll now keep you at arms-length
no more tangling moments

I have learnt a lesson of life
not all that glitters are gold
although you were once good
but now you're a pungent taste

Your words are no longer graceful
Talking with you is a change of fire
Your voice pitch alone is a tear gas
it could annihilate if by inhalation

That's why I choose to write to you
but one thing I won't fail to tell you
put an end for being a toxic woman
and stop gaslighting in relationship
