People are so oblivious to what love is
They allow broken love to fit a description
This is what love is.

Love is not waking up
wondering who you have to be today
for their benefit.

Love is waking up
knowing that you are you and they are they
bringing only goodness.

Love is not saying 'I love you'
when you do not feel it.

Love is looking at someone and smiling
feeling 'I love you' in every language.

Love is not having to dress up and out
just to get them to glance,
to make them compliment you,
and make you feel loved.

Love is being in a crowded room and them, you
being the first person they, you see.

Love is knowing that there is trust,
there is respect,
there is wanting,
there are two.

Love is something that is not a want,
it is a need.

Everyone has a need for love.

Beyond your looks
Beyond your smile

I see your person
I see your soul

I've seen your fears
I've seen your tears

But you chose someone else
But you chose her

You are not the self-sacrificing love I deserve
You didn't deserve all of me and all of everything

I miss you, but only the you you pretended to be.

I missed our kisses
I missed breathing normally
Our oxygen mixed
That is what I missed

You kissed me again
But this time I was suffocating
I had to push you away
to catch my breath

Yet you pulled me back in
You knew I was suffocating
yet you pulled me back in
You're no longer my oxygen

I have no air with you

First you fall for them
Then you fall into their arms
And someday
You’ll fall in love
But then
Fall out
And you’ll fall apart
Fall into pieces
And eventually
You’re just stuck there
Waiting for the next person
To catch you

I'VE been crying

JUST quit hurting

TRIED to live on

TO you

FORGET the hurt

i've just tried to forget

Someone asked me to draw
Draw what heartbreak looks like
I finally got tired of drawing a broken heart
And I started drawing you

— The End —
