I used to love you
And you used to love me.
But our love just was not enough was it?
Something so broken in our world.
Even our love.
So we sought the comfort of family
No risk or exhaustion.
You know, the kind of toxicity that occurs
When another being has combined with your core
And energy is now being used on another self
That is you, yet is not.
That kind of toxicity?
