You were toxic,
I knew that.
I continued to fall
Conscious that you wouldn’t be there
To catch me.
You laughed
As I cried over you.
You stood there,
Watching me crumble
With every vicious word you said.
Your love exploded
Inside of me
Like a nuclear bomb,
Killing everything in its path.
I knew it was twisted
But I loved it, and I loved you.
I was a toy
That you enjoyed
Until all of my tricks didn’t work,
Then you got bored.
You were toxic
I loved you so much
That I didn’t even realize
I became toxic, too.

The author's comments:

This poem is about a past, and unhealthy relationship that I experienced. At first, it was incredibly hard writing it since I had to re-live everything horrible that had happened. However, as I started to push through it and let the words fall onto the page I realized writing this was a step in the right direction. I'm proud of this piece because it helped me realize that I was strong enough to get out of that relationship. I hadn't really thought about it before, but I was able to leave someone I loved so incredibly much, and I was able to recover from everything that had happened. I want other young girls to know that if they are in a bad relationship they all have the strength to get up and walk away--no matter how much they may love someone. You are more important that anyone else.
