validation is killing me.

by tyler 2 years ago in sad poetry

validation is killing me

you'll be the death of me, I swear

you've got me chained to the pain

I hate you, but every time im down

you're there for me

to wrap your arms around me

to tell me you're here

I dont even notice that the shackles are there

that is, until they get cold

you stop giving me the attention I crave

you let go of my hand and push me away

are we in this for life?

sometimes I love you,

you're killing me slowly

written may 29. 2019

yours truly.
