Relationships With Habits

It goes to figure

Why I would push

Away so many.

Deny several.

Relationships suck

When they revolve around a habit.

No trust to be had


If you're anything like me

you still give your

Whole heart.


Of what you think you know

Or say

Or what you've heard.

It's like turning yourself in

And pleading guilty

To a fucked up charge.

There's no justice...

No law.

There's no law that


Over the trust in your heart

When you place it

In some others hand.

Habits are just


Lies are just


To everybody

Everyone involved.
