toxic love.

your perfect poison,

your vile venom,

that draws me in

with its facade of longing and lust

and fickle promise of pure love.

cunningly contagious

tantalizingly toxic

as it enters my bloodstream

and infects my needy body.

i feed off your wicked words,

your generous gestures.

i search blindly for an antidote

to your lethal allure.

i search helplessly for the exit

forgetting how i ever entered

this unholy union.

but i am trapped,

bitten by the two-headed serpent

of deceit and desire.

i am desperate and defeated.

you hold my fate nonchalantly

in your skillful hands

ready at any moment to toss

my intoxicated soul aside.

i should not stay

but i know I can never leave.
