A Burning Thing

Toxic love is a burning thing

It’s a fiery ball of angst

It will ruin you and make you enjoy your slow death

It makes you irrational and paranoid

But it gives you purpose, which is why you stick through it


It will burn you down from the inside out

You won’t even notice because you’re distracted

Your entire universe is focused on that person

They could do no wrong in your eyes

This is dangerous


Toxic love is holding the sun in your hands but it doesn’t feel hot at all

You’re disintegrating

You’re charred and ashen yet you don’t know

All you know is that you love someone

And that burn might just make them love you back
