    TOXIC RELATIONSHIP

    This bond always made me feel different,
    While I enjoyed spending time with you that was the time I questioned myself a bit too much than normal, I asked myself if all that I did would be enough for you.
    I began hating myself if you smiled a little less because it felt I was the reason you were a little less happier.
    I always had the fear of making even a tiny mistake because that would lead to losing you.
    Everytime I tried to do something new I always wondered if this is what you would want me to do.
    I always put your happiness, your concern before myself.
    The time I began replacing myself by you, that made me realise I was in a TOXIC RELATIONSHIP
    A RELATIONSHIP that gave me a lot of happiness but also took away a lot from me while it lasted.

    Successful life means not only living with husband and having children..
    Getting out of the toxic marriage and living independently without a man's support also a success

    THE DEVIL

    Up on his pedestal, The Devil sits there and he waits
    Waits for some young Fools to come and try on his set of chains
    You and I, we went there blindly, walking hand in hand
    Stayed 'til we grew our devil horns, stayed 'til we were damned

    Lightning strike my Tower down, hit me where I stand
    Catch me on fire and let me burn, make me understand
    Change comes one way or another, don't give a damn about your plans
    The Star will come sooner or later, help you rebuild again

    You put ten swords in my back and three right through my heart
    You were supposed to be my Knight of Cups, you sure played the part
    You fucked with my Temperance, balance all askew
    Swords of Eight, tied with rope, can't see shit because of you

    Death swoops in on his white horse, doesn't stop for anyone
    Brand new and born again, he helps us to move on
    New perspectives like The Hanged Man, brand new train of thought
    The Fool can start her journey again, somewhere where you're not

    Up on his pedestal, The Devil sits there and he waits
    Waits for some young Fools to come and try on his set of chains
    You and I, we went there blindly, walking hand in hand
    Stayed 'til we grew our devil horns, stayed 'til we were damned

    Lightning strike my Tower down, hit me where I stand
    Catch me on fire and let me burn, make me understand
    Change comes one way or another, don't give a damn about your plans
    The Star will come sooner or later, help you rebuild again

    I saw my broken legs
    when the lights tried to shield your eyes
    but you flared up, unaware,
    that you'd let me mould your pulsing hand
    into a cane for a blind man;
    but you and I were not to be thus fated,
    trapped in an aging existence
    where spirited nudges crack the other's ribs
    and bitter wounds ooze from sharp tips
    of stitching needles, too vain
    to remain for long
    within the sterile walls of a first aid kit;
    yet, too rusted to nurse a wound
    and leave it unscathed;
    so we puncture holes into each other's skins,
    tangled and unable
    to tell apart our battle scars
    from the froth brimming our mouths
    as open vials of poison ricochet
    and leave two dead, while enemy lands
    lie awake, stealing marches upon our grave.

    Devil on my shoulder telling me to jump
    Blood through my veins giving me that pump
    Screaming Shouting acting like a chump
    I know after this it's going to end in a hump
    Kissing sucking he's fucking my rump
    After all that no one got dumped

    addicted to oblivion

    i feel the stab when you turn your back on me
    still, i think i will heal enough to please
    i don’t feel the metal pin you’ve stuck in my heart
    just like i didn’t of the millions you left there before
    i see the blood pouring out of the cuts like a flooding waterfall
    yet i cover them so the world won’t judge you
    they can call me the weak one, the one who pushed you away
    they can blame me, but i won’t let them touch you
    after all, you did nothing wrong
    i disappointed you, i made you unhappy
    i’ve changed my errors, just for you
    for all the needles you pierced through me, you’ve given me the morphine to stop the hurt when you return
    and i’m addicted
    because i love you
    so why do i want this poison out of my veins?

    Where I Fall

    I meant to wave you off
    Like the branches of a tree
    Shooing away the wind

    But I acted as the roots
    Leaving it to be
    always your move

    Keep tugging me along
    Show me where I will fall
    So the birds can sing songs

    Of how I used to stand tall

    Heart of Steel 2

    As the sun's ray flickers into night,
    I get ready to take another bite.
    You are simply just a sheep.
    Now my teeth are bone deep.
    I can see through your face.
    All I see inside is a disgrace.
    I can't wait to destroy your heart.
    That will be the painful start.
    You will never be alone.
    I feel nothing in my heart of stone.

    AN AFFAIR WITH LOVE

    //Does Love still treats you like a stranger?//

    I search Love in rundown
    alleys and dingy hotel rooms,
    In a stranger's arm drunk
    on lust and cheap beers
    and nicotine smelling breath.
    And Love stays in brief
    hours and weeks on sweat
    stained bedsheets and
    hickeys flowering on
    my skin's landscape.

    The Night is always benevolent,
    Masking her rough edges and
    jagged lines the Day screams of,
    And Love served on
    sturdy limbs and flushed
    skins leaves me
    shamelessly brazen.
    He calls me his lover by night,
    And his stranger by day.

    But there are heartbeats in
    moments that defines me
    and leaves me hating,
    Hands pressed against
    his thundering chest,
    I whisper "My love",
    And our eyes clashes,
    Fire meeting fire,
    My unsaid sentimentality
    hanging on charged
    crackling air...
    And he groans
    Then spats a low "Whore"
    I swallow him up,
    An act of anger and
    desperation
    turned defiant...
    and Pain becomes me.

    //I found Love in the arms of a stranger tonight but his touch left me cold//

    Addicted

    Addicted to a boy,
    Who's totally wrong for me,
    Yet totally right for me.
    I don't know, maybe he could be.

    He's really lovely,
    And he really loves me.
    He really cares about me,
    And that's all I ever need

    But I wish he could be a little different.
    Stop trying to control my existence.
    Isolating me from every direction,
    Because he's just afraid that I'll leave him.

    Sometimes I feel like I'm suffocating.
    But I can't control, I really love him.
    I know I should leave,
    But this time it'll be different.

    I know he will change;
    I know I am hurting.
    I don't know what to do.
    I just know I don't want him to leave me.

    I can pretend like I'm not really hurt,
    Just to make him keep loving me.
    My bestfriend tells me "I'm addicted
    To his attention and care; don't really love him"

    But she is wrong,
    I can't live without him.
    Just want him to change a little bit,
    For me and for us.

    She tells me I need help,
    Yes I do but to change him.
    To love me and give me a little space,
    For me to breathe in.

    Was I Or Were You Toxic???

    Okay so I literally didn't know what to write, but as I was scrolling through statuses, I came across that of my ex. Yesterday was his birthday and I didn't even know. I recently re-saved his number though.

    Who is the most toxic one among the both of us?
    You loved me after you first saw me while I loved you even before seeing you
    I fell in love with your name not knowing we would meet the next day
    We became a thing afterwards and you couldn't just keep your mouth shut
    Obviously you fell head over heels and konji was disturbing you from your wordings
    Or maybe I thought you did
    You shamelessly scratched your body in front of a friend of mine and in public
    I couldn't take that in and had to let go of you for my sanity
    You came back for me and pestered until you got hold of my attention
    Then the no calling and texting, not even calling back after you promised started
    I am that lady that loves to be all over and around her man
    Did you pretend to come back or did you come back for real?
    Months after months I came back for you after a single question from family
    I was real and wanted a forever but you proved to be a dick
    And asked for my body or romances to refreshen my love in you, even though you still had feelings for me
    But you said you needed a motivation and a kick start from me to fight for what we had and want to build
    That wasn't my way of love, it seemed your love language changed while we were apart
    Or it was your way of telling me you indeed have moved on
    Or rather it was a silent message to me, you could only bitch me around
    I left and months passed by, this time around I came back strong
    We agreed to do the needful, I called and texted hoping to make things work
    You spoke to your mom or maybe you lied about that
    Fast-forward, you came to see me after a while
    And I swore I wouldn't have let go of your hands if you dared gave at that moment
    A month or so after i heard from a friend that you got married
    I remembered that was our issue, about your cousin whom your family wants you to marry
    Even though you hated the fact that they pressured
    Thank God I never said you shouldn't because it clearly seemed that you lied about a lot
    Things happened and yes I understood you were full of deceit
    You lied to make yourself look good, but who are you to deceive a heart?
    Till date, you still rant about marriage thinking you would fool who
    But I know not what to believe, a liar you are and will always be with stamp
    I myself was a cheat, I nagged and blackmailed emotionally
    Because I don't have lingering feelings anymore than I did when I left
    Its just the routine for me, but I have been over you for years, since the first time I left
    Was I wrong or were you wrong?
    Or rather who is the cheat between us two?
    Maybe we both are toxic in our own ways
    And had a toxic feeling for each other, maybe it has become a part of us
    And just maybe I wanted to be deceived by you
    Or you were a good planner who planned it well and executed with caution.
    But this question I have to ask, when will this all stop?
    When will we stop hurting us emotionally and mentally?
    When will we truly move on?
    When will this toxic trait stop?
    Wait! Were we even truly and wholeheartedly in love in the first place????

    Yet my heart
    Refuses
    To accept it

    When she loved you, worked for you, took care of you, listened you, obeyed you, for you she was doing too much.
    But now when she moved out, breathing for own survival and happiness when she don't give a damm about the world and their words and about you, you started getting mad.

    Let me fall

    Greetings to you who left my life without a glimpse
    Who didn't see me as a person
    But as a chatbot
    Who counted all his sufferings to day
    But didn't see the thousands tears I cried
    Are you living a good life?
    Still living like the same?
    Planning to leave like nothing happened
    I wish nothing from you
    But to ask you to not catch me
    If you can't hold me for life
    Don't show me the better world
    If you're going to paint me black
    Don't see the worst of me
    If you are going to leave at my worst
    Just let me fall
    I'll be better off falling once
    Then living with this toxic relationship

    For full read below:

    Earlier, I used to be that naive,
    To understand all worldly chores

    In this era of adulthood from naive;
    I realised how concept of love changes

    Earlier, this concept was far better,
    Than I reflect in today's world

    There was no just hookups,
    Just a person in love with other

    There was no concept of friends with benefits,
    Rather being a single person altogether

    I miss those early ones
    Where no toxic ones exist

    Now, is the era of casual dating, hookups, greetings with benefits
    Moving ahead with just flirty, unofficial, going with flow with no future, using and cheat;

    I mean, there are endless terms;
    Be the ones who remains

    Either in a good relation or be single
    At last you will be better

    Than being filled up with toxicity inside
    Save yourself from these things to eat you up sooner.

    Toxic relationships are dangerous to your health; they will literally kill you. Stress shortens your lifespan. Even a broken heart can kill you. There is an undeniable mind-body connection. Your arguments and hateful talk can land you in the emergency room or in the morgue. You were not meant to live in a fever of anxiety; screaming yourself hoarse in a frenzy of dreadful, panicked fight-or-flight that leaves you exhausted and numb with grief. You were not meant to live like animals tearing one another to shreds. Don't turn your hair gray. Don't carve a roadmap of pain into the sweet wrinkles on your face. Don't lay in the quiet with your heart pounding like a trapped, frightened creature. For your own precious and beautiful life, and for those around you — seek help or get out before it is too late. This is your wake-up call!..

    Pulling on a Thread

    Remember those pictures of us?
    The only way to see them now
    Is to remember what was.

    They caught on fire fast
    And weren't the only things
    That went to ash


    Together
    We destroyed what we liked
    about each other

    Now when I see your smile
    I see a poorly lit crescent moon
    that no longer knows
    what it's like to be full

    All we could do was laugh
    As our waning love
    became a thread of fun
    That was deeply sewn
    into the past

    To remember us?
    Try pulling on a thread
    Go ahead and see
    Where do they all end?

    The ashes.

    replicating our love
    with a blade to my wrist
    the only way to feel you
    to have what i miss
    you made me feel so horrible
    so unloved
    so alone
    but feeling useless
    feels like home

    Your love that made me blind,
    Dying in a corner has changed my mind.
    Knowing you have left me completely spellbind,
    Can you please make the past rewind?
    My foolishness has made me remind,
    That this was your love that made me blind.
