Shallow breaths, blurring vision,

hoping and aching and petrified in pain

trying hard not to love you

but these efforts go in vain.

Strangled words, half-written letters

trying to write you away,

silence glimmers, irony laughs,

on paper you can’t stay away.

Immortalised in ink

memorised in syllables

every stroke is a thought of you

relief in these words – so minimal.

Wish I could stop, not feel

pretend i’m fine and pain never existed

this love is blinding, so paralysing

can’t breathe ’cause I’m addicted.
