before i begin, i'd like to make sure that it is understood that this is my own personal analysis of this poem, this is simply where i came from when i wrote this poem, and if your interpretation of the poem is completely different, that's completely okay! i'd love to hear your interpretations in the comments below!!
**trigger warning** mentions of abusive relationships
since this is one of my shorter poems, i will be posting another analysis in a few minutes because i really enjoy making these hehe
overall, this poem is about how feelings that have nothing to do with love can disguise themselves as such, and since we are in such a vulnerable position while we are "in love", we often can't see through this veneer.
to begin, i talk about the stereotypical "tingly feeling" that is often referenced when one is talking about how they felt when they were in love. i talk about how, in that position, one might think it's a feeling of rays of sunlight, providing one with warmth.
i go on to talk about how later one might realize that it was a feeling of a significant other's radiation, rather than warmth. it might've felt the same at the time, but while warmth continues on, radiation leaves nothing but a mess of mutations behind, similar to how a toxic partner leaves nothing but a changed person in their wake.
i end the poem referencing that while my partner might've forced us to fit together perfectly, it didn't mean that i didn't lose a few of my pieces along the way. i explain that while we might look perfect together, i am not complete by myself, forcing me to rely on my partner to feel complete, for the rest of my life, which leads to nothing but an abusive relationship.
**reminder** you can join my taglist at any time, just comment that you'd like to be added and i will do so as soon as i publish another work xx
