The pressure behind my eyes swells Like the tide under a full moon. Waves ***** against my rocky shores And shatter over me. Shards wash away But most stay lodged in my bleeding heart.
And I love you anyway. I love you despite your inconsistency and insensitivity. I love you even though I can't stand too close Without feeling worthless. I love you even though You're radioactive.
I love you despite the fact that you never Held me the way I needed you to. You were never there The way I was there for you. When I needed you the most, You looked into my crying eyes And walked away. But I love you anyway.
I needed you a lot And maybe I was too clingy. But maybe i wouldn't have held Onto you so tightly If I could be sure you would be there When I reached for you.
You always knew That I would drop anything And everything to be there for you. But you never gave me that security. Still, I love you
I love you even though I can't be sure of Who you are anymore. You used to show me how you felt You used to let me know. But you've become so robotic I'm not sure you feel a thing anymore. And I love you.
You used to smile You used to laugh Now your eyes are empty Except for racing calculations. Always thinking Never feeling.
You're barely human anymore, Just a machine That won't stop spewing And fixing things that aren't broken. Yet, I love you.
And you wonder why Your friends are gone You wonder why you feel so alone. You won't reach anyone Where they need to be felt.
And I love more than anything. I love you like I might die tomorrow. I love you even though you don't love me anymore. I love you even though you broke promises you never made. I love you even though you don't deserve my love anymore.
When I first met love It took me in its arm And twirled me into a world Where I could no longer Be okay with loneliness. It dropped me in the dust.
I was a foreigner here. The only reality I knew before Love left me stranded Was dark and quiet, Comfortable and terminal.
I was bound to fade away And my time was almost up When Love ripped me From my grave And ****** me into Its strange world.
Here, I settled into My tragic fortune. Waiting for Love To dance with me again.
Our first dance Was too furious to survive. Love tossed me Like a ragdoll And spun me so fast My head nearly Detached from my body. Love went for the lift And dropped me on my face.
The second time Love took me by the hand It's gentle swaying Almost made me forget About our first disaster. Softly, Love turned me around. I turned once, I turned twice, Lost in rhythm I closed my eyes.
Now Love turned me again And when I opened my eyes Expecting to greet the face That hypnotized me, Love was unfamiliar. Distorted and cruel, Love changed to Narcissism And left me in the dust again.
One more time Love asked me to dance. And I said, "Stay away from me. I won't fall for it again." So Love shrugged and Began to waltz without me.
I watched in disbelief As Love moved With a new kind of grace And fluidity. It didn't need me To create such beauty. But with patience, Love waited for me.
So I stepped in And Love let me lead. Love bent with me And caught me When I dipped.
