Why do I love you

You bring out the best in me
You test me
You protect me
You strangle me
But I like… you and me

You have taught me to cry in my sleep
Punched laughter in my dreams
Kicked my patience till I scream
You and me… such extremes

We agree to often disagree
We share to then break free
Toxic silences fill our spaces
One embrace
I’m yours again

I sometimes feel crippled
Held down… weighted
You are right
But nor am I wrong

Poison words
Thrown at my face
I listen and swallow
Weep inside my clinical hollow

I’m tired
You exhaust me
And then…
Inject your drug

Because I love you
