Emotional toxicity

These toxic emotions burn through every vein.

Hurt and depression such a familiar pain.

We barely survived left with little of our sanity.

Our beating lust hangs us with thread desperation attached to calamity.

Doomed from the start questioning if love felt was here.

So I peer in hearts past as stains turn to rust and all faith turns to fear.

This emotional prison took me to depths of despair.

I starved for honest loyalty but the heartfelt left me bare.

These tears that are shed are for the bonds that we hold.

What we had I know now was lust because of the resentment that we mold.

I know where there is love resentment can not live.

All those years of playing pretend we just tried to take and never to give.

Communication is everything no matter how sinister the truth.

And each lie that we told has taken years off our youth.

If we want freedom from this labyrinth because its deception is so vast.

You must conquer it with compassion and forgiveness from all the demons of the past.

It's much harder than it sounds for most it takes many lifetimes to complete this feat.

Until they love unconditionally they will find each lifetime burdened with pain anger and deceit.

So listen to me closely and ill give you life's hardest secret to bliss and perfection.

Its love, forgiveness, and compassion the first and final steps in the right direction.
