i always use 'drug' as a metaphor

for example; someone who shows you amazing things and have wonderful experiences. you can't live without them

but at the end of the day you know that they are bad for you
because at the end of the day they press a knife against your neck
claiming to love you

why do we always go back to them?
why do we go back to toxic relationships?
because we feel bad?
because we are scared?

that is power
