Things Fall Apart Poem by Katellyne Baker

Things Fall Apart

In the beginning, oh how i remember
how deeply i was in love with you.
No matter all you put me through.

I never gave up on you, just like you never gave up on me.
Oh i miss the old days
when we would have our old ways.
Exactly 1 year later, i come home excited to see the one i love,
surrounded with empty bottles.
Oh how i remember that night how my heart broke into two,
How my love for you turned into thickened black hate.

I don't know if it's me, or if it's you,
sometimes i wish i didn't think the way i do.

When you were sober the next morning, i suggested for you to find another woman to intoxicate herself for you, someone opposite of me.
Who ever knew you would threaten me with your own life,
how much i felt like the heartbreaker.

I only slit my leg to bleed the pain out.
You feel you need to do the same to yourself,
i tell you, 'hey it's your decision, not mine, i don't care what to do anymore, 'cause all were doing is falling apart into a black thickened musk of hate.'

That's when i took a breath of reality and realized...
Things Fall Apart.
