It's not flattering
But when I met you and felt attraction, I was relieved.
I saw our common interests and shared passions and thought
Perhaps you could pull me free
Where I had failed so many times.
From a one sided love that
Rips me apart on the rocks
Somehow, it's my own strength that holds me there day after day.
And I thought
If I can't lift myself away
Make my heart close
Maybe you could capture my love
With your own
Be my shield
A hand out of hell.
But reaching for help seems desperate
And your fancy seems to have passed.
The rocks remain.
