I don’t understand how some people can be so blind. Just a few sweet remarks doesn’t make a person sweet. Words that seem to roll off the tongue aren’t always genuine. It’s always the little things a person does that make up the person’s character. No one told me these things. I’ve learned this with time.
I tried to be so careful, because I was so afraid.
And still, I end up with a flood of emotions.
Anger, regret, shame, disappointment.
All of which competing against
The one emotion I was
Trying so hard
to avoid -
How to grow with
Every ticking second
That I spend being with you.
It’s a shame that most people grow tired,
When love is only worthy - if you work to keep it.
