you build me just to break me

hold me so you can mold me

my love couldn’t console

your love for control 

you’re not the soul that i once knew

your ego’s all that’s left of you

loving you was hurting myself

neglect became all that i felt

you used to make me feel cared for

then abuse felt like all you were there for

got used to playing by your rules

until i chose to make my own

the tables turned and i learned

your love was a double edged sword

i won’t chase it anymore

i hope one day you realize

a solemn truth beats a blissful lie

i hope one day you learn to be real

with yourself about how you feel

i dream of the day you lay awake

and realize we’ve all made mistakes

but loving was never one of them

i hope you learn to love again
