Poison

Hot tears, sizzle down my cheeks.

Bottom lip quivering, uncontrollably.

Heart beating entirely too fast.

Skin prickling with goosebumps, as the poison courses through my body.

The poison made of self doubt and unworthiness.

Mixed with loneliness and shame.

Sprinkled with heartbreak and loss.

Yet, when you came to me, and touched my hand.

You pulled me close and whispered into my ear,

“I will never leave you.

A kiss from your lips, steadied me.

Calmed the cold, that was settling into my bones, like madness.

Your arms warmed my freezing soul.

And your honeyed words, soothed my pain.

I feel the effects of the poison abating.

No longer as strong and overpowering as it once was.

Because you are the antidote and…

“I will never leave you.”
