I wrote this poem when I was super infatuated with Mr. Toxic and I was idealizing and putting him up on a pedestal. This kind of comparison is also an example of “black and white thinking” where I either idealized or devalue someone. In this case, I devalued my husband and idealized Mr.Toxic in this comparison poem.

He made me feel like

I was enough

But he was just a fuck boy

He made me feel like

A failure 

And he was my husband

He made me feel safe

And secure in his arms

But he was just a fuck boy

He made me feel 

Insecure and crazy

And he was my husband

He made me feel loved

For the first time

But he was just a fuck boy

He made me feel 

Hard to love

And he was my husband

He made me feel like

The most beautiful girl

But he was just a fuck boy

He made me feel 

Fat and ugly 

And he was my husband
