I still remember that night and the way that you made me feel. The words that were said cannot be unspoken. You broke something within me when their sound hit my ears, and their sting reached my heart.
Now they are a toxin inside of me, making me sick as I succumb to it. My body writhes in resistance trying to force it back out. Like a venom flowing its way up my esophagus, but it’s stuck in the back of my throat and I choke on it as I try to pry open my mouth. I fight to spit the words out like the poison they are to me.
But I cannot seem to get it all out. and with each second that ticks by, it soaks in my insides a little longer pumping into my bloodstream, slowly intoxicating me. Robbing me of myself as their delirium consumes me.
The death that they bring, it won’t come quick.
It will linger. It will hallow me out. It will shrink and shrivel me. It will destroy me quietly.
But I think I always knew you were the kind of toxic that could kill me.
