Not My Juvenile Love

By , Rockville, MD

Should I feel ashamed for having you?

Should I swallow my pride

And ask you to leave,

Get off of me?

 

Is that really something I should do?

Finish this race

With us apart

When you made me start?

 

I hate you too much to let you show

I love you too much to let you go

Will you promise to stay with me

To not become an absentee

If I don’t peel you away from my soul

 

You’ve been the litter on my skin for awhile

You’re not my juvenile love

I look at you and all I see

Is our unhappy history

And I hate you too much to let you show

Changes hit up my lifestyle

I’m shaky but meanwhile, here

You’ve been beside me

Through all the rough catastrophe

And I love you too much to let you go

 

I never thought I’d find a friend in you

Are the memories fading,

Or getting strong?

Should we get along?

 

Because you’ve been the litter on my skin for awhile

You’re not my juvenile love

I look at you and all I see

Is our unhappy history

And I hate you too much to let you show

Changes hit up my lifestyle I’m shaky but meanwhile, here

You’ve been beside me

Through all the rough catastrophe

And I love you too much to let you go

 

And I hate you too much to let you show

And I love you too much to let you go

Will you promise to stay with me

To not become an absentee

If I don’t peel you away from my soul

 

Because you’ve been the litter on my skin for awhile

You’re not my juvenile love

Changes hit up my lifestyle

I’m shaky but meanwhile, here

Is keeping you on me worthwhile,

Because I can’t exile pride

One-on-one I can’t find you vile

You’re not my juvenile love

I look at you and all I see

Is our unhappy history

And I hate you too much to let you show

You’ve been beside me

Through all the rough catastrophe

And I love you too much to let you go

 

I love you too much to let you go

I love you too much to let you go

I hate you too much to let you show

I love you too much to let you go
