Please no promises!
Judging from the last few years
I’ve learned
Her little preferences
Must be ignored
In the name of honesty
She said to me:

“You’d tell me if you felt the need...
Wouldn’t you?”

“I love you...”

Trust me
I’ve done the research
How many windows must I have navigated?!
And when she says
“You don’t have to explain
Yourself to me”, that’s why

Oh she says
“I’ve been here before!”
You convince yourself nothing will change, but it’s in the name!
And it puts me off
Mentioning again
Despite her assurances

“You’d tell me if you felt the need
Wouldn’t you?”

“Do you feel the need to medicate?
I love you as you are.”

Could you love me as I’m not?
