Because
You've made me happy,
Because
You've made mecry,
Because
You've made me angry,
Because You're ignorant.
And Yousmile,
And You cry,
And You're destructive.
Your character is yourflaw.
I want to pinch it off your skin to make You perfect.
I shed tearswhen You prove me true.
But I won't allow myself to reveal You.
So I'llthink about something else now.
And as I wait here to cover You with my cloudsof
forgetfulness,
I'll save my emotions for someone who deservesthem.
Someone not so ... You.
