Favorite Quote:
"Love people when they least deserve it. That's when they need it the most." <3

Like a heavy air
You suffocate, inhaling
Is now my burden

Living with you is
Like trying to gaze into
The eyes of the fire

Scorching. Masochistic.
Futile. I refuse to cower.
But I cannot, won't

Heave this yoke any farther.
My wandering done
Heart spent, nothing left to lend

The author's comments:
I wrote this after I finally got out of a very unhealthy relationship. I'm publishing it so maybe others will find comfort between the lines if they're in my place or find the courage to break out the hold someone has over them (:
