Void

What is it

To be loved,

To be adored,

To be taken care of?

/

Why do I have to beg

For your attention

Or your friendship

Or your affection?

/

How is it

On the other side

Of every phone call

Where I provide?

//

I’m tired of asking

And asking

And asking

For nothing.

/

I don’t ask much,

But still I feel like

I’m the burden

You want to fight.

/

You take my insecurity

And watch it grow,

Until they take hold

And never let go.

//

And I scream into the void:

Do you love me?

Do you love me?

Do you want me?

/

And I scream until

my voice gives out;

And now it’s just a whisper

Into a dark heart:

/

Do you love me?

Do you love me?

Do you want me?

Or was I just your accident?

/

Was I just the easy way

Until you got bored?

I became too much

And now I’m a chore.

//

I’m not even sure

If I have any tears left,

Or if you’d be worthy

Of any tears I’d have.

/

Am I loved?

Am I loved?

Was I wanted,

Or was I just there?

/

Am I so desperate

That I would die

For anyone who might

Tell me a sweet lie?
