Surrender

You said my touch
Was the most intense you’ve ever felt
It doesn’t take much
To make my still-beating heart melt

“Why the fuck would you want me?”
You pushed me away, punished me for loving you
And I don’t understand why you don’t see
I don’t understand any other answer
Of why I can see through you
To the real you

We put our pasts behind us
But are still ruled over by our pain
I still remember that touch
Playing it over again and again
Just to look into your steel-gray blue eyes
Blacked out by pain and lies
Is it no surprise
That you push everyone away, or you expect everyone to die?

Why?
Why can I see through your eyes?
I’ve spent so many years crying out for you
Just to be with you
To spend a moment with you
To hear your voice as you talk to me
Talk through your lies
I don’t waste my time believing
I’ve been waiting
For you to stop running
How can we quit before we’ve begun?

You’ve always wanted someone like you, someone who can see through past your bullshit, to the real you. Someone you can relate to. Someone who will truly be there for you you and not abandon you— even though you expect people to.

Well, here I am.

Surrender
