You intrigued me
You appeared to be mysterious
You aroused feelings of excitement inside me

You rewarded me
And this reinforced my behaviour
I started chasing after you
Wasting time away
This led me astray

Interrogations started to ask
Where were you?
I had to lie
Since I did not have an alibi
I wanted to protect you my friend
I believed you were my friend
This was only a distorted belief
I believed I was lucky
But luck had nothing to do with it

I missed out on a lot of things
but don’t think you are the king of my life
I will overcome you
with the help of my new friend: therapy
I am no longer
One of your victims
I am an overcomer!
