sweet toxicity

sweet toxicity

A Poem by lostnstars

Hours kept counting, “will you go to sleep?”
All six pillows beg you, so is your bed
Pointless fights just for you to take a leap
To your present longing self that has bled

Ruby and mum said to kill dying smoke
Day and a day, all blues in silhouette
Week was getting weaker, so was a bloke
You did look back, then lit your cigarette

You view her detailed story as your tale
Begging for her truth that she struggles with,
Photographs of her like she was on sale
It choked on your heart but it helped you breathe

Indulging on aqua feels godlikeness
Seduction, fiction, you’ve already won
pouring an undone soul in nothingness
Is never the right way to love someone

Both your flows were light, but also heavy
Cowardly thinking it was déjà vu
Emotions were held by poison ivy,
I still see myself coming back to you

You said a handful in the poetry.
"Both your flows were light, but also heavy
Cowardly thinking it was déjà vu
Emotions were held by poison ivy,
I still see myself coming back to you"
