Do Not Get Attached

bytheoncomingstorm©

I am mad at myself, not you
Mad for being too kind
Mad for always apologizing, even when I've done nothing wrong
Mad for always thinking of you, you are my distraction, my wanted distraction
Mad for loving you so much it hurts me
Mad for opening up to you, becoming vulnerable
Mad for getting attached to you
I am mad at myself, not you

I told myself not to get attached
I kept screaming it at my heart
I should have taken my own advice
Now I'm falling to pieces, falling apart

I am mad at myself, not you
Mad for getting attached this fast
Mad for craving your happiness above all else
Mad at the effect you have on me, you soothe me, intoxicate me
Mad for being alright with being hurt, just so you'll be happy
Mad for letting you get close, you are closer than I've ever let anyone get to me
Mad that I desire you so much it sweeps over me like a rushing tide
I am mad at myself, not you

I told myself not to get attached
I kept screaming it at my heart
I should have taken my own advice
Now I'm falling to pieces, falling apart

I am mad at myself, not you
Mad for letting you capture my heart
Mad for allowing you access to all of me
Mad for being jealous, it isn't my place to feel like this
Mad for how I feel about you, I feel so deeply it chokes me up
Mad for divulging my secrets, you know all of me
Mad for telling you how I felt, I'm terrified you’ll use it against me
I am mad at myself, not you

I told myself not to get attached
I kept screaming it at my heart
I should have taken my own advice
Now I'm falling to pieces, falling apart

I'm mad because I love you
And that means I might get hurt
I'm mad because you confuse me
And all I know anymore is that I want you and you alone
I'm mad because you can read me
And that means you know me better than anyone
I'm mad because I'm addicted to you
And that means I can't live without you

Don't get attached
Don't get attached
DO NOT...
......... GET ATTACHED!!!

I told myself not to get attached
I kept screaming it at my heart
I should have taken my own advice
Now I'm falling to pieces, falling apart

I love you yesterday, today, and tomorrow
I love you in the good times and the bad
I love you with all I was, am, and ever will be
I love you because you do all of this to me
And against my own advice I got attached
And I wouldn't have it any other way... EVER!!!
