Read Poem: Toxic, by Nicole Rodriguez

How can I still want you when i Know you’re toxic?

But when I’m not near you I can’t help it.

Hearing from your sweet voice makes my heart skip a beat.

For you…

I’d drop everything..


would you do the same??


you just leave the line to ring…

Unresponsive text messages and nights of the unknown.

Makes me question…”who you were with?” that you can’t answer your phone.

I know you deal to get by…

And liking you could be my demise…

Feeling so high when I’m with you I know I’m addicted.

Am I not enough for you to even send A simple text message.

I’ll forgive you again because in the end..

We are only just friends.


boy you really got a hold on me..

And right now it’s hard to control these feelings.
