|Sad to "say," you share a timeless and universal theme of many human relationships through your verses here, Carol. I can relate to a lot of what you have expressed here although, thankfully, I have not experienced the "toxicity" and "acidity" to which you allude. Still, I have hurt enough to be able to understand well. Love and best wishes to you,

|Poison of the words and hand can never be cured they leave their mark forever in a soul. There may never be a solution. You are so very gifted when it comes to expressing the deepest emotions.

|Poison relationships aren't good Lilly. I was in one many years ago and got out. Fortunately I found my beautiful wife now and our little girl is our angel.

|Love it Carol, I think Belladonna although poison, in moderation was used in magic ceremonies as a halluciogenic. But nontheless, your message of being true to ones self, is a wise old tree, stemming branches of truth.
Peace and love forever

|My dear lady Lily, it is a sad situation that one can be so fooled by another. That one must live such indignities that you have written so well.
I bow and tip my hat to you

|Carol, It is called standing up for yourself...

|Great reflection of a relation that doesn't work.
It can only mean one thing and you come to the same conclusion:
make the choice for yourself, stand for yourself.
Fantastic writing Carolee

|It has always been a mystery to me as to why a relationship can go from euphoria in the first days and months to a choking, dying and absolute hatefulness soon after. I think the warning signs were there even in the beginning, but most people are so deliriously happy with the person they fell in love with, that they saw, but against their better judgment, ignored.|
