Repeat

Written by Jacob Ibrag

You’re the smoke I inhale from this

cancer stick, patiently taking me apart till

there’s nothing left. Can’t see you, yet I feel your

eyes cloth my skin as I slither my way back home

from the therapist. Another day recycled that’s

surely to repeat as I try to convince myself

that your no longer within reach.

  9. Because you’d grown too reliant on this other individual, to give you what you lacked in yourself, you will become codependent on the person, and, the person will control your life, and, this, is not healthy one bit!!!

    How do you become codependent and get controlled by someone. We’re they trying to control you or is that just what you thought. Who would do that.
