From obscurity, I was thrusted to the limelight so suddenly

You plucked me out from my shell and showed me off like a new toy

I knew you were trouble, as Taylor Swift famously sang

I knew you were going to be my downfall, so I tried to run away

You lassoed me in, held me with your charms

Sweet words that didn’t have depth and promises never to be kept

It took a while but now I’ve rid of you

I’ve planted myself solidly now

My roots have grown deep

I shall not be plucked and displayed until left for dead
