you can not love someone into loving you
i love you but you don’t love me
  Mar 2019 Carly
I feel the rush in my blood
                         in my bones there's something
a tension like a current in a river
                 like a storm against a tree
                 like a foot on blades of grass
something took ahold of me
and i couldn't quite shake it
that unnerving feeling that left me wondering
and i didn't really know what to do
so i called you but you didnt pick up
so i sat in the dark
so i thought to myself and anyone else who was listening
my mind was numb from chasing away those feelings
                                              chasing away the darkness
                                              chasing away my fears
and i always kept thinking
until you called me back
but it was half past one and i was tired
and all that time i wish you would have told me it was going to be ok
                              i wish you would have held me close to you
                              i wish i didn't give you unrealistic expectations
but i was hurting
and it was a wednesday
and i was only wishing for you.
I don't think any of this made sense
but you sure do
I think?

you caught me at a bad time
eyes locked like a bullseye
I could feel your lips on my neck
like a disease without a cure
I let you infect my heart
until nothing was left and we were chained together
you knew this would never work
young, dumb and in love forever
you couldn't keep up with my schedule
I couldn't figure out you
so we fought in the kitchen over other people's messes
so we yelled in the car over the music blasting
our turbulent world came crashing
and like a well-rehearsed symphony
left you struggling with an ending
left you standing the rain while I turned away

I love him
I tell myself
I know that
We will be together forever
I don’t believe that
We could be separated
My thoughts tell me that
He’s the love of my life
Sometimes my heart lies and says
I could live an eternity
Without him
Like my friends say
“We’re perfect for each other”
And you can’t tell me
He’s not the one.

Now read from bottom to top.

some days
hurt more
than others
but today
is like
no other
