If Only You Knew

If you love me

in the way that you do

must I love you.

Can I just be me?

Allow things to just be.

I think you have some damage

and I do too.

I want to see flowers open up naturally

I want to feel gladness

but I don’t think that’s what you want from me.

I feel sadness

but you have overwritten me.

I feel weakness.

So I guess it’s just going to be me.
