I have showered under cold water
without so much as flinching
but when you said you didn’t love me
my insides turned to ice

I have had voices screaming at me
for fifteen years or so
but when you answered me with silence
my heart seemed to shatter twice

And I’ve been known to put far too many
sugar cubes in my cups of tea
but when you wrapped me up in your words
I thought I’ve never been anywhere so sweet

So, despite the fact that I don’t tend to
wrap up when I become cold
I still find it strange that I shiver at your name
yet I can’t find it within me to let you go

Just because you won the heart of the person that was hard to get or difficult to handle doesn’t mean they’ll be that little spark to set your life ablaze. I know they say that if it’s hard, it’ll be worth it in the end. But in the end, you’ll just be tired. You’ll be so tired. Chances are that you’re trying to force what should be easy if every day is like composing a list of things they don’t make you feel shitty about. You can call it love all you want, but trash is still trash no matter how many times you cover it in glitter.
