Self inflicted

Written by: Caryn King

Selfish and conceded, I'm causing you pain,
Apologies and kisses and I do it again.

Always so sorry but I can't find an end,
To the misery I'm bringing to such a loved friend.

I cry and I cry cause you're walking away,
But I did it myself, I can't ask you to stay.

I love you so purely, so thoroughly, so much,
Tears blur my vision as I'm missing your touch.

I want you so badly, you're perfection to me,
But I know you can't handle my selfish young needs.

I stand and I stare as you walk your new path,
And I breath and take in my own aftermath.
