I old poem I wrote right after I got out of an abusive relationship, the mix of emotions and determination I had to become stronger.

Those memories left behind

Those hollow words still drip with venom

The memory of you still brings pain

That hollow feeling that reminds me of love

Solid as a sword piercing through my lungs

The corroding posion that was once our memories

numbs my heart and covers my eyes

I opened my heart from the chains that once bound me

I was so blind at that moment for you

The chains withered and broke

With nothing and no one

Alone with the pain you caused me

Silenced by fear

I broke free

and slowly rechained my heart

The pain didn't stop

My mask slipped and shattered

Piercing my loniness and last hope

those crushed feelings and views

all broken by you

I remade my mask to remind me of the pain

of loving you

When I took another chance

To take another glance

at these creatures that broke my heart

and left so many scars

I had forgotten the pain

Until you called my name

And reminded me of the pain I once felt

I took it out on the new found love

and that I must never forgive

I will never hurt someone like you did

 I must be alone

because of the memories of posioness incantations

you left upon my soul

until I can control

the feelings i hide under this broken mask

soon I will need a new one

etched with the happiness

and outlined by the sorrows

for I will not be held down

by you

my despicable loathing of a love
