You are toxic,
Stepping in and out of my life,
Treating me as your own personal retreat.

All consuming,
Taking your fill until there is nothing left,
Nothing left but an empty shell,
Leaving me to heal,
Leaving me to save the damage that you cause.
How do you feel?
Do you see it?
Has leaving me broken made you better?
Stronger perhaps?
Of course it has.
The destroyer of me,
Eater of my mind,
Breaker of my soul,
Not once but multiple times.
You are toxic,
But I let you in,
Because of some misplaced guilt,
Over some misguided love,
The demands that I must love you,
That I must always take it, and I do.

You need me,
I don’t need you,
There has to be a limit to my destruction.

But you keep breaking me,
And I keep letting you in.
