Because I love you

Because I love you....

I will hurt you and you'll never understand why.

Because I love you...

I will look you in the eye and lie and tell you it's the truth.

Because I love you...

I can never truly be myself around you, I don't want to scare you away. I want you to stay.

Because I love you...

I will make empty promises, I swear I'll try harder. I'll say it every time. I want it to be true.

Because I love you...

I will never cease to disappoint you, I've only ever let you down when all I want to do is build you up

Because I love you...

I will be there. Physically. I have no where else to go. But i'll remain absent minded as ever, eternally clueless in the ways of love and happiness. 

Because I love you...

I will lose you. I can't hold back these things that make me hurt, all I want to do is love, and be held, by you, only you

Because I love you..

You'll never be happy.

And I know you'd be better off without me but my greed and jealousy and insecurities will never let you go

Because I love you.
