Breathe Deep, My Love

It’s bittersweetness was revealed to me
On many occasions.
I often wondered how it didn’t destroy me
Or leave me broken beyond repair.

I did feel useless often,
Like a distant memory, you tried to forget.
But I never forgot you
Or the pain of betrayal.

I welcome the hurt,
Allowed it to seep into my soul.
It is now a part of my every breath,
Pieces of it slipping out into the atmosphere
Becoming a part of someone else’s being,
As they breathe it in.

I hope the next one you are with

Breathes deeply

And inhales it
The toxicity of your love.
So you can feel this.
