when you know something is bad for you, why do you still embrace it?


Somewhere I hide
behind crumbled walls
in a pit of blackness all around.
Drained from life
I live your emptiness so long
I need to get away from you
 but how can I?
When I’m so attached to you,You breathe my life
and at times I can't even breathe
you break my joy
and fill me with emptiness.Whenever I escape, I miss you
I'm so broken beyond repair
And when I see you smile;
You know I’ll be coming back again.

Why do we embrace this? If only I had the answer, I would be rich. Good writing.
