it bothers me that I could love someone that hurt me….

as if there’s something wrong with me….

but I never knew it was pain…

when it was mixed with toxic love….

I feel guilty for caring for you…

ashamed as you throw me away…

I feel even worse that I saw for a time only the good in you…

it blinded me against everything else…

the pain runs deep…

intertwined with shards of memories…

I loved you….

I looked up to you…

and I saw it all in your eyes…

but I’m laying this story to rest…

my eyes on the horizon ahead…

thankful for the life I’ve been given…

letting you go a little at a time…
