I am a sponge sucking up love

But not releasing it

Because of guilt

As I don’t love myself


To my frustration 

You hold back most of yours


Alone can I breathe

Delay of Execution Day

Together I strangle myself 

In guilt, self destructive 

Thoughts continuesly

Hammering onto

My leftover esteem

I hurt/love
