“A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history.” ~Mahatma Gandhi


you helped me off the ground,

only to push me back down.

you took my shattered heart 

and lit it on fire.

now that fire spreads through my body,

burning any chance of happiness i have.

i helped you through your worst

only to be put on a shelf until you needed me again.

now your voice rings through my ears 

making me regret ever loving you.

Writing this peace helped me remove myself from a very toxic relationship.
