Good Hurt

November 6, 2010

I won't settle for gasping
Give me drowning
I won't settle for ache
Give me pain
If you give me joy
I won't accept
Call me foolish or insane
I won't settle for flickers
Give me flames
And don't tell me to run
Let me stay
Don't offer affection
That's not what I want
You'll only make me turn away
Don't just leave me
Please betray me
Don't upset me
Hurt me
Why do I ask for all of these things?
Because from you, it hurts to good, you see

For some reason we keep going back for more of the things that hurt us most. Practically begging for more pain.
