Dear you, a spoken word on a toxic relationship.

Dear you

I used to paint pictures in my head of what we would look like together

I used to dream of the day we would one day meet

And the day I would walk into your open arms

Because everyone told me you would be the best years of my life

 

Dear you

We met for the first time today

You’re quite intimidating and confusing and I haven’t completely figured you out yet, but I think I could get used to you

 

Dear you

I have known you for a while now and I think I love you

You preach my creativity and promised me you would support me no mater what

You said if I stuck by your side, I could have whatever I wanted and how could I pass that up

 

Dear you

I’m starting to get a little tired, I see you every day and don’t get me wrong I love you I know it’s a little rushed, but this is starting to get too much

I’m overwhelmed

I give you all my all everyday and when your attention is else where

I give you my undivided attention anyway

 

Dear you

I haven’t slept in three days

But anyways

I’m on my fifth cup of coffee today

Just trying to keep up with you

You never leave my mind, but I’ve been trying to unwind

 

Dear you

The thought of having to see you keeps me up at night

And makes me not want to get out of bed in the morning

And I know that’s not right

But you tell me I need you

You tell me I will be nothing without you

 

Dear high school

We have been together for about 3 years now and I think its time for a break.
