I pushed

You pulled

I cried

And you did a shitty job of trying to console.


This mess has blown up in my face

Because you only wanted to complicate

This simple thing we’d made.

I asked for more than stolen moments with you

You asked how many.

I begged for time to get to know you

You wondered why.

I only wanted your love

You needed to make sure I never got that far.


I watch you standing on my doorstep

With the rain pouring down your face

And your eyes plead with me to



But my broken heart knows

That the sweetest misery

Won’t be corrected by apologies

Nor by tears,

But by the power of love.

I push the door closed



Love was too simple for you back then

And too complicated for me now.
