Love Me/Hurt Me

Your hands,

Soft as they brush my skin,

Your knife,

Cold as it plunges deep into my heart,

Your lips,

Soft as the press lovingly against me,

Your words,

Harsh as they cut me down,

Your eyes,

Tender as they gaze into mine,

Your lies,

Breaking my world apart,

I love you,

Why can't you just leave me alone?

I need you,

Go away!

Be with me forever,

I can't escape you,

Praising your love,

Begging for my safety,

Why, when you hurt me so,

Do I always run back?
