You beg and plead for me to stay,
“I can’t live without you.” you say.
to make up, clinging so tightly I can’t even breathe, then you treat me as if I don’t exist,
this push and pull, can you desist?
Chain me up and keep me down
why the hell do you even want me around?
You say you love me over and once again
I need you to be my equal, not in a relationship where I always sin.
You just love the idea of us, and what we used to be
you, too afraid to change and grow, also refuse to let me
Your piece of mind is all you care about
again we’re fighting, go ahead bring out the doubt
and all the while you send me to the asylum on a mental roller coaster ride
all is taken away from me, my self, my love, my pride
sitting here, tears streaming down my face, with nothing to say
my feelings for you, changed so greatly in these years but never array
Wanting to keep me around with all for our future that I visualize
but a happy future for us, not even I can devise.
cause you don’t have any hopes or dreams, fantasies of your own
all I hear after a fight, so many times you atone
how many times will you say I’m sorry but refuse to lift a finger
to show me how you feel, instead again you walk away, barely linger
before walking out again, but you stop to say, “I love you”
and I think once again the day I met you, I rue.
