You Don't have to Love me
You don't have to love me, I don't want to be a burden.
To your heart, I don't want to be the pain.
You can close your eyes when you see me,
cover your ears if the sounds I make reaches you.
But just don't speak words you mean decietfully
You don't have to love me, I don't want a burden.
In my brain, you don't have to be the ache.
I can open my eyes and not see you,
let my ears feel the throb and not hear it.
But I can never forget the pain, in my heart you brought me
You don't have to love me, I don't expect a reciprocal
I can always give it and not want something else
My heart feels joy to the littlest beat I hear
My feet tremble in the sudden gush of adrenaline
But don't ignore my joy, you could at least recognize
You don't have to love me, I don't intend to reciprocate
The last thing that I want is not a disappointment
I don't feel the urge to have gratitude win
I have stood alone before, and I will again if I must.
