By Wren Fallon

You don’t care that I love you

You’d rather love someone else

You don’t care that I love you

You push me away in self-defense.

You prefer them young and dumb

enough to be manipulative.

You prefer them shallow and false;

it gives you more initiative.

I watch you self-destruct

When all I can do is stand by.

You rather trade love for pain

You will never see me cry.

A real emotion frightens you

And so you run away.

But I am real and I am strong,

My love will find its day.

There is no future with you

Somehow it’s no surprise.

Someday I’ll love one who loves me back

On that I will not compromise.

Your eyes are shallow as puddles

Your kiss is clumsy and dry

Your touch is heavy and hurtful

I no longer want to know why.

I loved you once; I do no longer

I turn and walk away.

Where I once was a hole exists

Your patch will only fray.
