Code Purple: Day Twenty Nine

is the name of love
to a madman.

Beyond selfish.
Beyond control.

He is
no more caring
than he is destructive.

There is no reason
he will not defy
with sick logic.

He will insist on being right.
He will insist on proving you wrong.

He will charm you
until you trust him,
then he will keep you up all night
explaining why you
cannot be trusted.

He will give
for awhile,
but afterward
will only take.

He will destroy
everything you love
to hurt you.


By any means
you have.

(What doesn’t kill you
will only make you stronger).
