Grenade [revisited with comments]

i gripped


words in

with pulled pin

until you stooped
too low

so fuck it
i let go


— I spent the last year in a toxic triangle. Caught in the middle of two people who I cared about very much but were completely dysfunctional. And don’t get me wrong, I know that I am broken. I’ve already made that clear. This was different. It was beyond broken and I got caught up in trying to fix things. Trying to fix them. I foolishly thought I could make things better and I tried like hell to be what they both needed. In the end, it turned out I had spread myself too thin. While trying to be everything for someone else, I was neglecting the things that I needed to be and do for me. But about a month ago, I woke up and said ‘fuck this. I’m done.’ That’s a story for another time. But what I can tell you right now is that it felt SO good to let go of that negative shit. And this poem came about as a result.
