Quotes of the day #163

I tried to leave

many times

but

as soon as I got away

my lungs buckled

under the pressure

Panting for air

I’d return

Perhaps..

This is why

I let you

skin me to the bone

Something

was better than

nothing

Having you touch me

even if it was not kind

was better than

not having your hands at all

I could take the abuse

I could not take the absence

I knew I was beating a dead thing

but

Did it matter?

If the thing was dead

when at the very least

I had it

addiction
