Love letter to toxic love

Because you asked, I gave it thought
I began to consider all of the misery
That you have wrought
From the broken heart and the fear of loss
To the world of pain I live
You've destroyed my life
And probably many more
The future is blank
There is nothing there
You've invited me to dwell
In a place without hope
Your words were toxic
Your love was poisonous
You condemned me
By your existence
To the lowest station of hell
But think nothing of it
You just asked
So I thought I should respond
My heart is dead
My mind is weary
And my soul is wracked
With the misery
Of loving a selfish
Who has nothing
But everything
And is jealous
Of anything
Anyone else
Can have
