'cause you love me, and I love you

In this life, we are taught to feel as though

we need to be filled to continue to flow.

The words of our loved ones can 

encourage our growth, 

but what happens when that

isn't necessarily so?

 

Friends, family, lovers.

What do they all have in common? 

The idea of their love and support 

seems like a requierment, not an option.

They're supposed to be a loving part of 

your emotional foundation, 

not the catalysts that spark your

unstable escalation. 

 

Please, think about what you're doing to me.

Your title doesn't instruct you tear me at the seems.

Please, think about what you're doing to yourself.

Your actions will never allow us to play as a team.

 

You should'nt use my flaws against me, 

'cause you love me, and I love you.

You should'nt raise your hand in anger,

'cause you love me, and I love you.

You should'nt encourage tears that can't help me see,

'cause you love me, and I love you.

And you should'nt make it seem as though you're a stranger, 

'cause you love me, and I love you.
