Me on a hot summer night
June of 2018, the night I met Mr. Toxic

Whether it’s on tinder

Or at a bar

He shows up 

Eager to do

All the things

Your last man wouldn’t do

Eager to please you

In unimaginable ways

He makes you believe

That this time it feels “different”

That this feels almost


But then…

Without fail

Once he gets what he wants

He races out of your life

Leaving you in a 

Chaos of feelings

So I wrote this poem in July of 2018 right after meeting someone that I would have an on and off toxic affair with. He came after a string of my wild phase of hookups and I guess that the chemistry I had with him made me think that maybe it would be “different” and I was quickly infatuated.
