I'll Be Fine

Wed, 02/10/2016 - 12:28 -- MRSZAW

I am passionate about people who are clearly not passionate about me

spending all of my time trying to take care of someone who isn’t what I need

but who is what I think I want

patching up holes in their interior only for them to puncture holes in mine

never sure if our hearts rhyme or if i’m trying too hard

they know how they feel and how badly I feel

but they never do anything to heal this mess i’ve made of myself

a mess I made so they could be clean

but I never realized that they may want to be cleansed of me

why would you want to get rid of someone who helps

when all you do is yell why would I stay i’m clearly in love

but you can’t see around your own insecurities long enough to see that I have my own

how dare you try and tell me i’ll be fine

I know i’ll be fine

but I don’t care about what I will be I care about what I am and what I am is broken

lost

confused as to why you can’t understand

if someone left you we both know you’d cry so how dare you tell me to hold my head up high

i’ll be fine

i’ll be fine

but i’m not fine now i feel like i’m dying

i feel like i’m drowning in all of your problems that I now carry on my shoulder

if I were a greek myth i’d be that guy that holds up the sky because that is what you are

the sky

and maybe i’m not your ground

maybe you are the blue to someone else’s green

but I don’t know that and I haven’t found my someone else

if you have found your’s then of course i’ll be happy

i’ll be fine

because if you’ve found your soulmate then you are clearly not mine

i’ll be fine

Because there is someone out there that won’t let me carry my burdens alone

we will share

i’ll be fine
