A poem about toxic relationships……..
Without you in my life,
I can’t imagine it being so.
Yet it doesn’t make sense to me,
‘coz our relationship was up and down like a yo-yo.
But attached to you I was,
And attached to you I’ve become.
Now detached from you I must become,
As we go our separate ways.
Mixed feelings I get,
When I think of you going away.
I’m happy. I’m sad.
I’m relieved. I’m mad.
But inside I realise the truth.
I am selfish for holding on to you.
Selfish for not letting you go.
Yet you did the same thing to me
We didn’t let each other grow.
It was a toxic relationship.
But addictive all the same.
Persisted yes we did.
But things never changed.
I loved you, I hated you – depending on my mood.
And that was part of the problem,
Because you were just as moody too.
So as this roller-coaster finally comes to an end.
I ween myself from you,
And hope we never meet again.
