Drain Me

Now that you have taken
Everything you can take
All I have to offer
And some that wasn't mine to give
But I still handed it to you
It must be that time again
I understand
This is what you had in mind
For day one
Use me and lose me
That time has arrived
Forced away
With no intention of crawling back
I walk the lonely path
Regaining my virtues bit by bit
Taking life a day at a time
Until I'm whole again
The desire to show you
How strong I've become
Is overshadowed by the knowledge
That you could pull me back in
Drain me
And leave me helpless
Like an animal hit by a car
Twitching and praying
For death
