power button

where's the power button

to turn off her bleeding heart;

it was not meant to handle

such anguish and distress

and I fear it may shatter

(but is it still whole?)

yet it was not by choice

for her to fall so hard for him—

a man who is both hot and cold

with obligations that hurts her so

because he could never love her

as much as she loves him and

she just wishes he could

love her just a little bit more

and to be there for her but alas,

he can not; it's not his nature

so she waits to lose herself

to darkness when the light

within her hearts finally—

fades out
