Things I Wish I had Asked

Why did you
make me
love you?

Why did you
lure me in
with your
empty promises?

Why did you
make me think
that I needed
you?

How could you
claim my
devotion with
the temptation of
a better life?

Why did you
make me
a servant
to your wickedness?

How could you
appear to be so
seductive,
as if
you could make
my wildest dreams
come true?

Why won’t you
leave,
when I want
nothing more than
freedom?

  1. This is really powerful. Almost makes me cry the more I read it. This could have been me pleading with my eating disorder. I could imagine saying this to my anxiety or anorexia as I continued to dive deeper into them while slowly being ripped from who I was and what I really wanted.

    This really struck a chord with me. Great writing ❤
