Coming back in
just to back out
You can’t have me
but can’t move on
Frustrated so –
ask me to go
Can’t you see you’ve been hurting me?
If you care so much, why can’t you try?
I see now, it was always about you –
You never wanted but your dream of me
not my reality, not my hard-sought truth
Accusing, you point
only to then recoil
I’m fucking with you
Sure “I don’t get you”
I must be “confused”
If I really understood
I’d think just like you – right?!
Can’t you see you’re clipping my wings?
If you love me why won’t you let me fly?
I know now how I must threaten you –
I never wanted to cause any kind of grief
but I know there can be no peace in lies
Don’t change for me
don’t you even try!
I don’t want anything
It’s okay if we don’t fit
We don’t have to cut
or mame ourselves –
I’ll love you from afar
You don’t want me, so please let me go –
it doesn’t make you wrong or me right
We can be different and still appreciate
We don’t have to be together to love –
I’m not rejecting you, or your dreams –
but they are yours to have, not mine
I’ll always want your spirit to thrive
but it’s my responsibility to keep mine alive
Can’t you see, the limits your creating?
If you want freedom why draw lines?
I’m learning now, what love is for you –
All or nothing means choosing extremes
but I’ll keep on trying to walk the midline
