If I loved you, life would be easy…
And I believe him, but he doesn’t and he won’t. For two years we have been playing a game of push and pull. Mostly me pulling and him pushing. There are moments that I hate him and I just know I will never speak to him again. I will never let him touch me again… Moments followed by a simple text from him saying absolutely nothing, but it’s enough to shake the intense anger I feel that developed over an 8 minute panic.
But I don’t love you, not like you need it
I don’t love you, good as you are
And when I kiss you, I know that you can feel it
And I see it in your eyes, and it just breaks my heart…
I can feel it. I feel it and, yes, he does know it. He knows that I can’t handle it. We joke about my crazy self, but he knows I’m fragile in relationships. He knows my sickness as well as I do. Why doesn’t he walk away for good. He knows I can’t. He knows I won’t.
But I don’t love you, much as I want to
I don’t love you, no, it would be a lie
And you deserve love, you’re better than a good day
And you’ll find it, but just not in my eyes…
It is a lie. It started out as a lie for him and now to make it all worse it’s a lie for me. But I have tucked him into one of the many compartments of my life where I believe no one will find him. After all, no one knows those places in my head. They are my safe places… Or at least they are the places that I keep hidden so no one can mess with them… Mess with me anymore.
‘Cause it ain’t here love, no
And it just breaks my heart
There are times when I think for a moment that it does, in fact, break his heart. Then I think to myself… “Oh silly, silly, sick little (old woman) girl you must find a way to grow up. No one could possibly care. After all, no one really knows who you are except him…. And, Jason definitely doesn’t love you”.
