I need you
We fight, lie, yell, and for what fun? I don’t want to waste my time on you, my pain that I endure is too much to bare. I hate you, your rude, you can’t even look at me! Why, why do you leave me to be left with my judgmental thoughts, wishing I had someone better.
Even though your rude, you lie, and can’t look at me, I love you. I look for you when I walk into a room, weekdays, on the weekends even, I look for you. Hoping you’ll watch me, look for once in your life and see I am right for you. I shouldn’t need approval if I am good or not. Because I am.
Please look at me, try to understand, that I am here for you and that I love you!
