Affliction

I love you

Even though you don't

Love me.

Why do I

Torture myself?

I look at you

And, time after time

You look

Through me.

Invisible

Is how I feel.

Your pain

Hurts me.

Your rage

Runs through me.

Your joy

Lights up my life.

Why do I

Torture myself?

Because it's the

Sweetest

Pain

I've ever known.
