Chokehold - Poem by Josh Howell

you did your time
you paid your dues
you only got back
what you used
you broke my heart
you tore it out
i didnt know
what it was all about
i find yourself
trapped in a well
i cant find a way
to escape this hell
its all your fault
you took the curve
you'll only get
what you deserve

this is the last time ill
say this to you

let me go
let me be free
im sick and tired
of all this misery
why cant i
for one day
maybe leave this town
or maybe run away
im sick of you
you hurt me so bad
and i was the only
one left sad
you left my heart
broke and cold
now you got me
in a deep chokehold

i'd always smile
when you'd call my phone
i didnt know
you would leave me alone
you came up to me
out of the blue
who wouldve thought
who wouldve knew
you always try
not to talk to me
you avoid me
so you dont have to see
i dont need you
not anymore
you walked away
and i shut the door


this is the last time ill
say this to you


let me go
let me be free
im sick and tired
of all this misery
why cant i
for one day
maybe leave this town
or maybe run away
im sick of you
you hurt me so bad
and i was the only
one left sad
you left my heart
broke and cold
now you got me
in a deep chokehold


something you dont know
is my love for you is so strong
and if you didnt know
its been building for so long
i dream about you
in my bed at night
and i wish you were with me
so i could hold you tight
i think of you
every minute of everyday
and i wanna be with you
in every single way
you live in my head
and i dont want you to go
this love for you i have
you will never know
why did you have to leave
why did you have to go
you left me with so many questions
the answers i didnt know


let me go
let me be free
im sick and tired
of all this misery
why cant i
for one day
maybe leave this town
or maybe run away
im sick of you
you hurt me so bad
and i was the only
one left sad
you left my heart
broke and cold
now you got me
in a deep chokehold..
