safe space

it’s disturbingly euphoric to understand
that I’ve been searching for 
some of your worst traits 
in other people because those are 
the fragments of you
that my skin hasn’t released
and as more time passes 
the more I realize it wasn’t even you 
that I fell in love with. 
I was unaffected by your appalling tendencies, 
not because I actually thought 
you were a “good” person underneath. 
I didn’t care either way. 
you were just you in a manner 
that granted me the serenity 
to just be me 
and I was willing to protect that feeling 
by any means necessary.
