A Poem by Tainted Ink

Like a fiendish addict
Helpless from your poison
Doomed to live in conflict
Mainlining your toxic love
Now I am infected and rotten
For push came to shove
Found myself the only victim
Caught by your twisted cruel game
You knew I’d succumb
I had no shame
My soul was crippled
Maimed by madness and insecurity
I never even struggled
Just a hopeless pathetic junkie
Begging for more wrecked and needing
God it was too easy
To destroy me completely
so you did

crushing admission of self inflicted resentment of your own weaknesses. I can and do understand.

No weakness in this poem. Direct and honest words.
'Caught by your twisted cruel game
You knew I’d succumb
I had no shame"
A strong ending to a excellent poem.
