Bonnie and Clyde, Bleach and Ammonia
Letting Go of a Toxic Relationship
Our gravitational pull kept us grounded in years of love and deceit,
becoming addicted to the wounds we gave each other.
I bled bleach.
You bled ammonia.
Why were we so surprised to the murder of the other?
The gas produced can blind you
but you didn’t take a chance on it failing,
keeping me sightless with the hollowness of your words
I took for stark truth.
I guess I should thank you for not letting me see
how vindictive you truly are.
But I felt it, Oh God did I feel it.
With that, I took a different vow:
That is the last thing you will ever have me feel.
And this is the last time I will ever pen you to paper.
Making you immortal when you deserve nothing,
Nothing from me anymore.
Great leaders may have their accounts recorded by a faithful servant,
but you are no influencer, nor I your bitch.
Your scroll is now sealed.
