Poetry

Cleansed

“I willingly abased myself by

begging you not to leave and to do right by me,

Being deprived of your presence,

made me realize how bad I longed for consistency and how

I spent my time looking for it in the most toxic and overrated places.

You knew I believed you when you told me you wanted to settle,

therefore,

you temporarily accommodated me with just what I needed…

You sold me dreams,

you made these promises you knew you wouldn’t keep

And for the longest time,

despite the accumulative blows,

I kept hoping you’d change, come back and fix the mess you’d made..

Until, I realized that

I was already accustomed to your absence,

I no longer craved your presence nor anything that had to do with you.”
