she said i can’t love you anymore
because you drain me.
you’re like a mutated, human-sized
leech feeding on every bit and morsel of me
and you scream whenever i cried salt tears.
i can never understand how
two people who mutually hurt each other
could stay together willingly
but now i see that people will always
hold onto things that they are
familiar with, even though it’s killing them.
and i’m sure those half-burned wounds
on your body would never heal
if you keep latching onto me
because i will never stop crying.
so it would be better if we
stop loving each other
