How Self-love Became so Destructive
It is beyond my understanding
how you could crush my spirit so systematically
and still say "I love you" so effortlessly.
See, the problem didn't end up to be that I believed the words you beat me with
(because I don't anymore).
No, what I struggle with the most
and what made the biggest hole in my heart
is that for all these years, I thought
"this is what love is".
