The Pain of Loving

What do I do now?

You're slipping from me, fading 

And a part of me somehow

Just watches as you call out to me 

Screaming to follow you 

Screaming to grab onto your hand 

And pull you back into my heart 

But you've been slipping from me, fading 

And a part of me screams along with you

Yelling to come back 

Yelling to love me harder 

But you've been deaf and blind for too long


My mouth refuses to say your name 

My hands refuse to stretch out towards you

My feet won't budge 

And yet a part of me wants you back

Maybe I'm a masochist 

But I'm addicted to the pain that comes with loving you 

And yet I just want to let it all go
