Toxic

Here, a box enclosed
A heart within erodes
Securely locked in codes
And here you speak of keys that would unlock it

Hear a world of lows
Of broken things in rows
With only dirge to grow
And here you speak of rains that aren’t caustic

Here a virtue stowed
A promise never owed
A barricaded road
And here you speak of maps that seek to cross it

Here my weakness showed
And tears beneath me flowed
I dared believe to hold…
…you here, without realizing I was toxic
