How Could You?

How could you let it control you?
Things were fine in the beginning.
I could tell you anything,
but now we can't even speak.
It's like I don't exist
in your eyes, like I'm nobody.
You let it control your life,
and I wonder where I stand.
Do you even realize what this is doing to my life?
Do you even care you used to be the best mom?
I miss those days,
I want you back,
I miss the good times we've had.
I could never share those days with anybody.
What happened?
I thought you loved me.
It's gotten way out of hand.
I guess I don't matter.
It seems your addiction is all that matters.
I want to see you, but
I never will be able to.
I hate what you have done.
I thought you would choose your daughter over anything,
But I guess I was wrong.
