i lost my drive for achievement,
i've misplaced my will for success,
i can't bring myself to try harder,
i'm really becoming a mess.

i'm in too deep,
a little too late,
though i still care,
i'll just sit and wait.

i'm destroying my world,
i've let you down,
i'm a disappointment,
in my imperfections i drown.

i have no drive to try,
i've pretty much given up hope,
i have no reason to change this,
i don't know how to cope.
Not wanting to try anymore, yet still wanting to succeed.

Together,as a team/couple we could have soared. We would have been a success on every level. Business, spritual, personal, fitness. You screwed up a good thing and locked me out. The prson I trusted most, loved most, was closest to-broke up swiftly, told me "no contact', called the police if I tried to, got a restraining order, had me arrested for stalking, cost me 60k in legal fees, ..... the damage is extensve,nd possibly not salvageable. you did it,so I ican see why you would not want to try. We were on our way to the top. You could be driving your Porsche,
Iwill support you in all of your new interests. We ca accomplish anything together. Look at us apart. Hollow maningless lives. Going nowhere . Suicidal. You hold the key(for right now). Act quickly or your choices will be limited. I will be in th drivers seat, and will be drpping you off at the next stop. You do have reason to change. Stop talking/writing. Take action.Get off yourass girl. Tell your man you love him and dont want to lose him. Other within weeks, you will hit bottom. Options exhausted. Poor judgement at every juncture. A loser's spiral that could have been stopped, Why wasn't it? What possible reason is preventing from shutting off the man who loves you, hurting both of you, ruining both your lives and "destroying your world" The Sophmore Slump becomes a the Junior's Jump .
Stop whining. You admit your choice of paths was wrong and you miss your old life. YOU CAN INCORPORATE WHAT YOU WANT OUT OF THE NEW YOU,AND CHUCK THE REST. BEST OF BOTH WORLDS, OR NO NONGER OF THIS WORLD
I will help you to cope. you have plenty of reasons to change, especially your relationsip with me, who loves you more than any man(or wiman)ever will. LU/MU
