"What a frightening thing is the human, a mass of gauges and dials and registers, and we can read only a few and those perhaps not accurately."- One Tree Hill


It began with simple contact

And progressed with continuous exposure

I didn't know it at the time

But it was about to become my world

The first time was such a rush

I couldn't believe the feeling I got

But then one became two and two became three

My friends then began to question me

"Are you sure you know what your getting into?"

"No, but I love it.

To tear us apart

Would be too cruel for words"

A thirst that cannot be quenched

A plan with no end game

It seems the world wants us apart

But I always find a way back to her

I give up my friends

My family thinks less of me

And you just sit there

With a blank expression

I really care about our connection

But it seems one cares more than the other

She has a toxic touch

One that affects me so much

No wonder why everyone shouts no more!

It is a draining relationship

You reap the rewards

I can see clearly

Or can I?

Oh you smiled at me...


The author's comments:
I worked hard to make this about as many things as I possibly could. I ended up personifying a bad habit a person is trying to get over such as alcohol abuse with how often times a toxic, one way relationship between a man and a woman goes. The person is snared by their attraction, and it seems that no matter what the consequences are, they just can't stay away.
