Without

Deep down, I love you
Even deeper down, 
I know you're unhealthy for me, 
A parasite latching on, 
Draining every bit of life
From my fragile body
Your hand grips mine, 
Too tightly, bones threatening
To snap into dust
That same hand, 
Holding me back, 
Forcing me down, 
For all these years
Our fingers entwined, 
Binding me for life
No longer, I refuse
To be your trophy, 
A tool for you to use
Even though you're a monster, 
I forgive you
Even though my heart
Burns with resentment, 
Boils with hate, 
I forget you
Without you, 
I take a hold of my life,
Once again
This time, 
I won't let go
