Monster

Did I finally make you draw the line, Is this where it really ends
Did my time bomb of truth detonate to early, Devastating your concept of friends
 
I read every letter of every word, Of every note that you ever sent
Just an hour ago and it took forever, Now tell me was that time well spent
 
You created me don’t walk away from me, I’m your monster
Sorry that I couldn’t turn out to be, Just exactly what you wanted
When you close your eyes and I’m all you see, It’s me your monster
You’ll not escape me, belay me, It’s too late to save me
 
Have I become too much, Have I gone too far
Or am I not far enough because you’re still reminded, Of who you really are
 
Did I love too much, Or was I just another jar
On your collection's shelf, mangled hearts left still beating, But you never planned for this…
 
You told me I had you regardless, what when or where
Yeah I’ve re-read notes, I’m sure you, wish you could tear
Up and apart, like you did with our love
A love, I undeniably had zero control of
Granted every sense of innocence imaginable
Like did I give you all I could to make it manageable
Just wanted everything to be more tangible
But now you see me and you crumble cause you’re frangible
You had me tangled in your web of circumstance and I tried
To keep a love alive you said would never die
You’re just a victim of a spell you wish you’d never conjured
You did it now deal with it ‘cause I’m your monster
 
Have I bled too much, Revealed too big a scar
Unfortunate truth, An ugly reminder of who you really are… Does it…
Burn… Did I take it all too far
Onslaught of sound… there’s no hiding now, guess you never planned for this
 
You created me don’t walk away from me, I’m your monster
Sorry that I couldn’t turn out to be, Just exactly what wanted
When you close your eyes and I’m all you see, It’s me your monster
You’ll not escape me, belay me, It’s too late to save me
