Toxic Love

By flyleaf726

Isn't it funny how you have that effect on me?
The kind that can darken my day or change what I see
Its hard to gather that this is now me
Someone who is at the mercy of what you feel for me
I have difficulty understanding myself
Can't find who I once was within my own self
Why can't I see beyond you for anybody else?
That bond that we had is all my heart dwells
Pick me up and drop me when I get in your way
Promise that you love me so I will stay
But once done, you just go away
How much more can my heart take with this decay
This affliction I can no longer take
This feeling of emptiness I can no longer shake
Loving you was a mistake
A mistake I can't take back and has begun to overtake

    A poem I can completely relate to. The toxic loves of our lives that we cant seem to live with or live without, they build us up, only to tear us down. They smile through our tears...good write...
