Let me kiss the scars you want to hide
Hold you and calm the pain you feel inside
Reassure you whenever you feel insecure
Prove to you my intentions are genuine and pure
Let us stay up all night talking about places we want to go
Cuddle up on the couch on rainy days and watch our favourite show
Have cook-offs and laugh at the mess we’ve made everywhere
Zone out in the bath about the greatness we share
Us camping while I pretend not to fuss at the bugs
You smiling and appreciating I’m doing this for love
Our road trips always filled with laughs and adventure
Taking life one day at a time creating our happily ever after
You look at me with want
You gasp when I touch you
Like I’m the air to your lungs
Filled up with so much passion
Your eyes…. They speak to me
When your lips slowly part ways
But your voice refuse to greet me
What does my presence do to you?
I’d like to hear.. And is it just with me?
Or do you get like this with everybody?
Sorry I didn’t mean to kill the mood I’m just asking
I just want to know if I’m getting on for a spin
Or if it’s gonna be something with potential of lasting
Do you see me in your future
Or would I be left in your past?
Would we crumble at the sight of hardship
Or would we make this love thing last?
Would people’s opinion matter
Or would we focus on our own?
Would we rethink everything
Or would we make this house a home?
The jar is overflowing
I know I’m undeserving
But I’m here and I’m still wanting
Stop allowing people to drain you and stop defending the situation by saying they are “friends” or “family”.
In every relationship it’s a two-way street.
You don’t give with the mindset of wanting something in return but let’s be honest, a lot of times that’s the root of the destruction of relationships.
No, I’m not talking about the exchange of material things.
I’m talking about the simple things like just having someone there to listen when you’ve had a rough day.
If you’re in a situation where every time you’re about to meet up with someone you have to mentally prepare yourself then cut the cord of that.
I wish I had this mindset sooner in life, oh believe me.
I would have been way less stressed.
People that think the idea of a friendship or family relationship entails constantly taking are the exact people you do not need to be around.
I’ve been on the receiving end of many “friendships” like that and trust me, if you don’t pick up on what’s really happening soon enough that situation can destroy you.
Yep that seems like such a bad word doesn’t it?
Well it’s not in circumstances like these.
Selfish is exactly how you need to be especially if you’ve voiced your concerns to the leaching party and they refuse to attempt to understand or accept how you feel.
Be selfish with your happiness, speak up on how you feel, decide for yourself the people you wish to be around and stop letting people choose that for you.
You owe that to yourself.
Sink or swim is what it’s down to
Already in the pond so if you swim, what do you swim to?
Maybe to the empty hands that you think is waiting for you
Illusion at its best don’t let the heavy whispers fool you
Deep breaths with every trickle of tears
As you float on your back it runs down to your ear
Above water under pressure and no one can hear the sounds
The whimpering, the gasps, your fear of going down
All the while being consistently meek
Crying is often mistaken for a sign of the weak
The fear is great but your power is stronger
The pond you thought where there exists no longer
