How much is too much
and how little's enough?
If I reach for you
will you shy from my touch?
If I choke out the words
will they be enough?

Cause I don't want to push, love.
I don't want to shove.
I just need to know now
if I'm still the one.

Are you still having fun?

If I opened the front door
Would you try to run?
Have my little "quirks"
become just too much?
Do you despise setting timers
for laundry and lunch?

"How deep is your love?"

If I asked you for candles and wine
would you do it?
Would you begrudge me for asking
to see if the shoe fits?
Cause I know getting older
doesn't have to mean *******.
Proximity doesn't have to mean closeness.

I just want to know, love
If you'd still be concerned
Do I bring too much heat?

Does your fire still burn?

And now
after years of torment
with only brief reprise
I can hold your
damaged heart
throughout each night
I can keep it safely beating
right next to mine

I can keep the longest nights
and greet the
sun-filled sky

with you

What I want
What I need

What I know
I cannot have

All the things
All the blocks
that restrict
what's up for grabs.

I'm sorry
I upset you
by saying
I don't want to be alive

but I can't lie
and tell you
that I do.

What's the point
when everything
is always a ******* struggle
what's the point
when every step
is always another step uphill?


What is the point
of all this hassle?
Just for love
some small joys
some tiny jokes that make you giggle?

When the things
that I want
have always been so out of reach
All the hardships
that I've been through
don't even help me peak

I just can't
I just won't
pretend that it's okay
to go about
and walk around
living the boring
day to day

The simple things
are all I want
I feel
I'll never get them.
I don't wan't fame
don't want fortune
just my own ******* kitchen.

But day by day
More and more
I think
it will never happen.

So can you really blame me
when I say
I just want to quit breathing?

Red lines running through my
       mind all day
I cannot make them

                go away
   cannot let the thoughts
                  sink in
Like a razor in my skin

Cannot let them win

The urge is more
                       every day
I cannot make it
               go away.
I wake up with tears
           in my eyes
and go to bed
              just the same.

I know I am fighting
          a battle

that I will eventually

Sometimes it feels like
we're just making excuses
to not see each other.
Is that what's happening
am I just overthinking things?
Are we getting closer
or further apart?

Do I
still truly
have your heart?

Why does the human heart
have to love
       so much?
Why do I have to
I would like to accept
  that things are
      the way they are
   And who cares?
                                     But I do
                    too much.
I want such a different
     life than I am living
And it's not so easy
to just "take a different path."
I like the road I'm on
It is just
    far too slow
          And it's killing me.

I'm so tired of breathing
                        the same
So tire of waking
                     to nobody
Unbearably sick of

I can't stand it.
