how should it be

How should it be

that your version of forever

is conditional.

we fell in love before we cared

about the day to day particulars

and now,

selfishly it seems

you are using the word unhappy in place of the word unfair

you were warned

you didn't care

you said you'd wait forever

not even asking you to

you were told

it would be rough

and mile after mile

you stuck it out

until you didn't

you got impatient

at the worst possible time

and even though you said you'd stick around

and see what happens

part of its tainted

i feel like its not the same as it was

we promised each other

when i wanted to stop, it was because i thought i was hurting you

when you wanted to stop...

well you were just cutting out


my world is fucked

you knew that

you embraced it

you gave me hope in the shadows

light in the darkness

and now

the solidness is gone


a cruel word

likened only to the loch ness monster

for you dummies...

that means forever does not exist

especially when you need it to
