Injured Love

Injured Love

A Poem by Anna
"

a little poem a wrote directed at my ex who I cannot leave

"
our love is like a dark dungeon.
it traps my heart in its intolerable cell of scrutiny
and instead of fighting, i welcome it with open arms
it covers my heart like a flood of black fire
and despite all the sharp-edged firey knives stabbing me
every time you hurt me, the walls of my trapped soul get smaller
and a hundred more knives fly into me
the shittest part of it all is that I cannot find the strength to pull them away
no matter how much i urge to be free from this bondage, its impossible
because if i do, my heart will painfully rip apart like a white piece of lifeless satin cloth
and that will be the most excruciating pain, worse then the knives that are keeping it together
i will always come to you like a moth to a bright light
i am not strong enough to build my heart so it's whole again
and i am so fearful of what might become undone
so i will not let go of this pain despite the battered wreck its turning me into
because loneliness is a powerful immense void of immeasurable swirling darkness that is so heavily laden with fears
so i will stay trapped and allow you to control me
because that is what feels comfortable
no amount of persuasion can make me stop
