I understand the fear of losing
people you care about;
getting attached and then ripped apart.
But how can you be afraid of
losing someone when they're not
in your possession?
I know you've gotten your heart
broken in the past and
have learned a few lessons,
but now you think everyone you will
ever love will do the same thing.
I wish you could see the
difference between what we could
create and bad precedents.
It's okay to be in a relationship
with someone because then at least
you have some kind of foundation.
Love can be hard, but with this,
when you're on the battlefield,
you know you'll have someone
fighting for you.
But going label-less,
making someone carry their
emotions like baggage on their
shoulders with no where to put it
down; that's the real struggle.
Losing someone that you were
never given the chance to call
yours is the worst kind of loss
because you never got the
privilege of tasting their love.
We both have our own definition of
But if you keep dancing around my
feelings and I quit this game we're playing,
it won't be because I'm a coward,
but because it's exhausting
trying to love you.
