I don't remember

why it got so violent,

but I remember

the crash

of a vase against my bare toes.

I remember

my face

staining itself with blood and tears,

from you striking me

over

and

over.

I remember

the bruises just appearing as blue and red and purple

a galaxy

on your knuckles.

I hurt you too.

we hurt each other, but it's so sweet

that I refuse to leave your side.

 

A DELICIOUS TOXIN I CAN'T WALK AWAY FROM.
