LESS OF YOU
Want to feel less, want to suffer less,
Want to understand, want to love less.
But, how do I tell my heart that?
How do I tell my heart to stop feeling? .
Folded the edges to see your glow,
Peeled the dermis, gently, to love you.
How much more gently can I be?
To not let even a touch hurt you. .
I want to feel your heart but I,
Can not let you feel mine.
That is the essence of the bond,
The relationship I have with you. .
I held your hand to hold you but I,
Would not hold too tight to suffocate you.
How can I learn to be whole,
If it is what I have to do without you? .
How much more do I suffer, to love?
To be loved was never the answer.
A bottomless pit of love, is all,
That I have for you and only you. .
I love you a lot, more than anything,
Yet I crave but nothing from you.
And what would I need from you?
I am a loner now, and I’ll always be. .
Stagnant hearted, I never wanted,
Anything, A dry feeling of your,
Love was but enough for me.
You were all I wanted to see. .
I wanted nothing more than to,
Feel whole of you, every inch.
To be a part of you and nothing more.
A lot more in so much less of you. .
