Love

Telling you that I love you has gotten so difficult

Like how can I claim to love you but do you so wrongly?
You’ve been there for everything and I mean everything.

We greeted the world together,

We being I, but still I feel separate

We faced the harshness of the world together

We faced death

Then we faced it again

Then that one time we faced death and almost died as a result of that death

Then twice more

The ones we wished, then took back

Taking them back because I love you and don’t want you to be consumed by so much hate

But I pushed the hate

I took everything away that made you happy

I took the creativity

I left you to not feel

I’m really trying to love you

But I’m also making it very hard

Telling you that I love you has gotten so difficult

Like how can I claim to love you but do you so wrongly?
You’ve been there for everything and I mean everything.

We greeted the world together,

We being I, but still I feel separate

We faced the harshness of the world together

We faced death

Then we faced it again

Then that one time we faced death and almost died as a result of that death

Then twice more

The ones we wished, then took back

Taking them back because I love you and don’t want you to be consumed by so much hate

But I pushed the hate

I took everything away that made you happy

I took the creativity

I left you to not feel

I’m really trying to love you

But I’m also making it very hard
