No...
You don't need to...
Don't need to promise me the world
because I'll just take it for myself.
Don't need to protect me
like I'm fragile,
insecure,
weak.
Don't need to shelter me
from the rain of the sky or my eyes
because I can build my own home
without you.
Yes, I can live
without you.
And I think you're the one
who can't live
without me,
can't live without
someone to make you feel strong,
make you feel important,
as you whisper meaningless promises into my ear.
