“Drive You Crazy”
Too much of me I have given to you
I eat, sleep, and breathe your existence it’s true
But, the time has come for us to part our ways
I know I’ll be happier another day
But, for now it hurts
I know it hurts you more to see me open and walk through that door
All of the energy I focused on us appeared to me like it was never enough
….Tough but not impossible you gotta be strong
Love will drive you crazy
-Sunny La’ Prince
