Poetry Corner: Evacuation of Toxic Love

Our love burns,

It was once so soothing to my soul in the cold, N

Now the smoke of it is smothering and suffocating.

Engulfed by the flames of the fire,

That burned up the last of my love and desire.

We stood there and watched the life we built together become ashes.

Our souls separated,

It was a tortuous kind of pain,

That nearly drove me insane.

This love burned beyond the heart to the third degree of my whole being,

 Killing and suffocating me,

Taking up all the oxygen I needed to breathe.

Trapped in a form of hell,

I was under his spell,

Pleading to be released.

Let go of me,

So I can live and you can leave.
