He occupies my time with blatant lies.
He poisons my mind with slivers of hope.
He plagues my heart with banter laced with rejection.
And I love every moment he spends killing me.
He tiptoes across the unknown crevices of my mind.
Showing up only to shatter the peace I convince myself I have.
They don’t see those who had come crawling, knocking, begging.
They don’t see those who froze to death waiting.
