THERE’S NO CURE


THERE’S NO CURE

I don’t know how to express love
other than the way that I do

I grew up in a famiy environment
where it was hard to perceive love 

And seeking professional help
hasn’t fixed this

It’s depressing being told that the
love that I give isn’t good enough

Because I care deeply, it’s just when
people tell me that the love I’m
trying desperately to express isn’t
good enough to be considered love,

I feel broken – I feel like a shattered
mirror

Wondering “What in the fuck more
do you want from me?”

I give and I give, yet I still don’t
understand how love can only be
about showing affection

When I do have urges to express it,
but my “broken” body just can’t take
the chance because of past rejections

I’m gonna be alone and lonely and
this, I do know what it feels like

There seems no cure for that if YOU’RE
just going to give up and LEAVE ME,
like a coward

Perhaps you weren’t worth it afterall
Telling ME that now that YOU don’t
love me anymore because of it

Maybe YOU never truly loved ME in
the first place

“Puh”
