And cyanide in my styrofoam cup
This is a reference to Jim Jones, the man who originated the People’s Temple cult or religion as it was called. Jim Jones famously killed himself and the majority of his followers by forcing them to drink Kool-Aid poisoned with cyanide in the ‘70s.
This actually gave rise to the phrase drinking the Kool-Aid which means you’ve been blindly convinced to believe something or someone.
Unrequited love can be just as self-destructive as joining a suicide cult — the damage just occurs to your confidence and psyche, not your body.
