Love Poem: Killing Me Slowly

Killing Me Slowly

You are always on my mind
Like a virus eating away my soul
The more I try to get you  
Out and be free the more
You gnaw at my resistance 
Tormenting me day and night
I try gently to ease you out
I try violently to oust you 
From my veins
But every effort bounces back
Why are you so cruel to me?
You swore you love me no more 
You claim we had nothing going on
Please free me and let me go
Refrain from killing me slowly
