The Black Dog 

 

 

He’s yours

I can see him though

he’s not near me

He’s with you

Watching you

 

Your connection’s strong

Not as strong as what we had

But stronger than us now

He has more of you than I have now

 

Constantly between us

Stopping me from touching you

From you holding me

From us feeling each other like we used to

 

You don’t want him

And I want you

Rid of him

 

But he wont go

He’s picked you

doing everything he can

To make your relationship stronger

 

Wants to make it harder for you to find a way to leave him

 

You’ve tried running

-He always catches up

 

You’ve tried hiding

-He always finds you

 

You’ve tried imagining he’s not there

In the hope he’ll disappear

-He’s not left yet

 

But I know he will

and I’ve got that over him

 

If only I can make you see

he wont be around forever

that I see a future

with him not in it

then you’d have it too

that ‘one over him’

 

I can see him

And you don’t want me to

you want to get rid of him secretly

Singularly

But do you know how?

 

I know I don’t

But I want to help

 

because I can see your connection getting stronger

He’s trying to make it harder

for you to find a way to leave him

 

You mustn't try and do this alone

He’s so strong

And so persistent

 

But however much he wants you

Know that I’ll always want you more.

 

He’ll never have you fully

Not like how we have each other

Will have each other once he’s gone

 

He’s a beast though 

So be careful

Arm yourself with all the stuff

 

All the stuff that make it possible 

For you to go out there and kill him

 

You’re a warrior

You’re a soldier

You’re someone who wants to love

 

So get your armour from the experts

Get your weapons from those who know

 

Those who’ve helped others defeat him

Him: The Black Dog.
