You got under my flesh

crawled into my heart

now I want you out

but how do I start?

You wormed your way in

slipped by with your charm

dazzled me with your stories

can’t you see you are causing harm?

I wanted to believe you

so I forced sense to abandon

it’s not all your fault

I certainly had a hand in.

Endings are never easy

I’ll miss the times we shared

it is tearing me apart

if only I hadn’t cared.

Saying goodbye is never easy

walking away can be rough

but change is needed

and staying would be even more tough.

This poem is just an expression of the way some of our relationships in life are toxic and sadly they sometimes need to be flushed out.
