Shared Burden

You guarded the door 

While I guided my finger

To the back of my throat. 

Self destruction is a drug.

So I guarded the door,

While you guided your finger 

To the back of your throat. 

It wasn’t the weight. 

It wasn’t my thighs. 

It wasn’t for control. 

Because hating yourself is easiest

Around someone hating themself more. 

We agreed to never encourage

To only support. 

Because supporting someone hating themself

Is easiest when you hate yourself more. 

You needed my support 

And I needed yours.
