Childhood stories compared to my self-distruction

I fell for your fake love like Humpty Dumpty falling off the wall.
I dealt with your constant abuse and gave you the power to make me feel small.

Why did I do that to myself?

I ate up your lies like Alice in wonderland,
But you had no warning label and I ate more than my stomach could withstand.

Why did I do that to myself?

I was consumed with a desire to touch you like sleeping beauty lead by a curse.
I feared that the next time I left the house would be in a hearse.

Why did I do that to myself?

You controlled my like Ursula when she stole Ariels voice.
They asked me why I stayed and I felt I had no choice.

Why did I do that to myself?
