“Anything is better than this” – Nayana Nair

There is another in your heart.
In your mind there is always a new another-
someone you could have had.
“Anything is better than this”, as you so often say.
I wonder if the hell of your imagination has my face.
For long my hell has been – you, keeping your options open.
My hell has been – wondering if it is all in my head.
To smile and love you better, every time you treat me bad.
To measure the worth of love in tears,
only my tears.
My hell has been going towards you.
You, who has always been going away.

    Toxic relationships do not end well. Verses with the inner door open to pain. Reflection poem.

      True. Toxic relationship end up exhausting the people involved and in some ways emotionally handicaps for their entire life. The existence of such relationship is a sad ending in itself.
      Glad you like my poem 🙂 Thank you 🙂
