you

you

A Poem by Courtney

You swallow me whole, and then ask why im not more confident.

You suffocate me in your words, then wonder why I cant breathe.

You tie ropes around my arms, then are curious as to why I cant move.

You push me to the edge, then wonder why I want to fall.

I give all of myself to you, and you wonder why I have nothing left of me.

I lie the tight structure and the repetition. It drives home the sense of restriction, the need to breathe and find the freedom and release of a love that fulfills and does not construct and crush.

thank you so much, your poems are very beautiful as well.
This is very deep. I like the anaphora implemented on this! It illuminated the theme that pushing someone over the edge can lead to corruption. Well done!
