You're Not Trapped

I don't mean to trap you here with me.

I thought love was enough to keep you happy.

To keep you content.

But you want adventure and discovery.

I can't give that to you. Not now.

I can't drop college for you,

for I stayed patient while you finished yours.

 

I thought you'd heal my broken heart.

Yet you're adding to its marring.

You don't see the pain you put me through.

Hell. You probably ignore it. I get it.

You don't care as much as I do.

It's been this way my entire life.

My father begotten me,

My mother proud of me.

Pushed me away with their dysfunctional love.

Only to place a copy of it in my heart.

 

You make me feel like I'm trapping you,

like you can't do anything because of

me and I'm sorry.

I love you but that just means you

have more power to hurt me.

I'm not trapping you.

So stop making me feel this way.

Stop aggravating my broken soul,

because some days are just too much.

I wrote this one to a certain someone. Often we cannot find the words to decribe our discomfort to the ones we love, but it was easily discussed, only because we are two very close individuals. Not everyone has their "someone", I'm lucky to have found this angel that I deserve naught.
