Doses of You

This artificial hold,
has this mold already cracking.
piece by piece it's slowly shattering.
With me, this is such a familiar pattering.
As unreasonable as this may seem,
I want to ask you to just hold me.
Put your arms around me,
And let every bit of me,
come back to me.

You’re merely another entity.
That’s stolen a part of me.
And I know this could never be real.
Because of the things you’ve done.
The things you’ve decided to do.
You could never take back.
And your love is something I’ll forever lack.
