toxic love [poem]

I need to run
to get so far out of reach
you never find me
(not that you’re looking)
I need to light our bridge on fire
and watch it burn
make sure it’s unusable
for future mistakes
because I clearly can’t resist
crossing back
to retrace my own tracks
I need to escape this
residual heartache
your presence leaves on my heart
need to wash away the stench
of your hollow words
and honeyed lies
I need to get away from this
toxic love
