Favorite Quote:
“When you're taught to love everyone, to love your enemies, then what value does that place on love?”
- Marilyn Manson

How could I have known it?
Your bone-crushing embrace screamed codependence,
Reluctance to let go (in each sense of the word),

And hopeless, heartless lust.
My ears were clogged by then, though,
So how could I have known it?

I only wish you had informed me sooner.

The author's comments:
This is about a recent experience I had with love gone wrong, although soon after writing it I kind of reconciled things in my head and realized this poem applies more to something that happened to me a long time ago. The person I was writing about here isn't REALLY full of hopeless, heartless lust. :)
