You say you love me
Yet you turn on me with a vengeance
The moment I displease you

You say you want me
Yet you push me away when I am weak
Intolerable of my humanness

You say you need me
Yet you are mean and willful
Abusing the place I have given you in my heart

You say I am your best friend
Yet you don’t respect me enough
To show me that type of compassion and kindness

You say I am your world
But you don’t appreciate all that I am
Or treat me with the consideration I deserve

A true friend reminded me
I am worthy of love and adoration
That I have so much to offer
That my heart is too patient and forgiving
That I should want more for myself
Then to be made to feel
I am always wrong
And that no matter what
I should be loved and accepted for exactly who I am
And that anything less wasn’t real love

And I realize that she is right

I want you
I believe in you
I love only you
But you make it so hard to hold on
To anything you say

And it feels like we’re slipping away
