That Toxic Ex

You only love me when you lose a few brain cells.

You lips search for mine when that crisp ale finds yours

You speak of love and the future

But neglect me once your vision clears

Abandoned, I look for excuses.

Alone yet again I curse love, I curse the gods old and new.

I hate your voice

I hate your scent

I hate your hair and how perfectly it falls.

I hate I hate I hate

I hate that you only love me when you’re drunk

I hate that I fall for it every time

One day I’ll stop crying

And you’ll come around

With your beer-soaked brain preaching your false gospel of love

And I’ll laugh.

These spirits won’t lead my love deprived heart off that cliff anymore

Until then, drink up

I’ll have whatever you’re having.
