My sweet abyss

This is a poem that I wrote at the end of an abusive relationship while still trying to battle my mental health issues. I hope you enjoy! ©Dizzicizzi poetry

My Sweet Abyss.

Sweet poison I couldn’t live without,
Needing your sting upon my lips,
Drinking with dizziness from the pleasure,
Of falling deeper still into the kiss,

The bite that told me drink no more,
Yet more and more I drank with greed,
I sought you, wanted you, was consumed by you,
Lost and hopeless in my need.

I wished to feel your fire in my veins,
Lose myself in your oblivion.
Poison that so sweetly kills,
In ecstasy from purest sin,

Gently sponging life from deep inside,
I wished poison did not please my soul,
Drinking, feeding all the while,
Replacing heart with vacant hole,

I should smile for my second chance,
I was saved and just in time,
The poison nearly had me gone,
Almost blinded me to what was mine,

So why do I curse the one who saved me?
Who pulled me away from poisoned kiss,
Why did it hurt to be saved so unwillingly,
And taken from my sweet abyss?
