The Poison of Your Love

The poison of your love

Courses through my veins

Breaking the curse of you is futile

As your toxic essence encapsulates me

Surrounding me like a shroud


Your air fills my lungs

Choking me

Making me unable to breathe


The poison of your love

Washes over me

Drowning me in its depths

Its sweet taste on my tongue

Leaves a bitterness in my belly


Your toxic love slowly sucks my life-force

Leaving behind only a shell

Of the person I used to be
