  • "It could all be so simple/But you'd rather make it hard
    Loving you is like a battle/And we both end up with scars
    Tell me, who I have to be/To get some reciprocity
    No one loves you more than me/And no one ever will."-Verse 1 Ex-Factor by Lauryn Hill

    Last night I saw your face in another’s face. She looked just like you, glowing eyes, gentle smile, full of grace you were. But you are not here, so why is it I still see you when I don’t have you.

    It could all be so simple but my memories of you make it hard. It’s been months since our last encounter, weeks since our last fight. This thing between us, whatever it is, is constant in its commitment to haunt me at every waking moment.

    It could all be so simple but you rather make it hard, you never leave me even when you are miles away from me. You own my heart, I can’t get it back. I rent sanity every day but at night thoughts you demand my time and my dreams. One look at a photo of you and I erupt with anger, hating myself because I am still in love with you.

    It could all be so simple but I’d rather make it hard. I could delete you from my memory but you would reboot it all with one text message. I chase you as you chase others, I long for you and you long for another. But I am always ready for you when you cry and need comfort. I am yours when you are lonely only to have leave me when you are satisfied.

    It could all be so simple but it is not.
