There it is again.
That all too familiar sting you feel
As you pull away from his embrace
After he betrays your trust once
Again. You know he means well,
But intentions never meant much
To the girl who’s been given nothing
But intentions all her life. So you
Apprehensively accept his apology
And tell him it’s okay, even though
Inside you know it isn’t, and you cry a
Little on the way home wondering what
It is that makes you come back time after
Time. He makes you feel good when you’re
Together, and he always listens, sure.
But in the end he always drops the ball.
Maybe it’s because you love him.
Maybe it’s because you’re afraid of moving
On. Or maybe it’s because you think he
needs you more than he lets on.
You conclude it’s a culmination of the
Three, but that isn’t enough to make the
Pain go away.You wish he was better.
You wish he was more sensitive, less intense.
More open and less protective.
You hope that he would be all of the things
You want one day, but deep inside you know
He never could be. Eventually you’ll forgive
Him, but you know it’s only a matter of time
Before he let’s you down again…
