From Our Readers: To the One Who Controlled My Demons
For so long I suppressed my demons. I built up a wall especially for you. But you were too cunning and managed to ease your way to obliterate every inch of my defense.
I knew that you'd be bad for me but instead of taming the demons inside of me, I chose to be oblivious and danced with yours. I have to admit, we made a hell of a storm. We made each other's negatives into positives. We loved with no restraint.
Little did we know that the love we had for each other would deliberately destroy us. That both of us were not that compatible. Realizing that, you let go. You left me with nothing to hold on. You ruined all of my senses.
And when I thought that I can live without you, that's when you decided to come back. Then when you felt that you had me all over your fingers— again, you decided to disappear.. to say that I'm broken is an understatement. I'm shattered. You destroyed me beyond repair.
Now, I am building a much stronger, firmer wall. I caged up my demons. Because I know I need to protect myself from you —the thief who still have my heart. But I know, in the depths of my being that I'm just fooling myself because I know that once I'll look at your eyes, inevitably I'll be the one to destroy my wall and let you devour me again. Because I'm a fool for you.
