Addicted

Do you love me

Or are you addicted again?

Can you tell the difference?

I am not your new drug,

And I won’t be the one to save you from yourself.

I don’t want the burden,

The sole responsibility of giving your life meaning.

Obsession is not a form of flattery,

So you should figure out what it is you’re really feeling.

Do you care

Or am I something to give you the attention you’ve been craving?

Can you tell the difference?

Let me breathe alone,

Let me go if your heart isn’t true.

I am not an endless supply of emotions for your selfish taking,

But a person who needs something tangible.

I don’t have the patience,

Or the capacity to fall for an empty heart.

You are seeking a filler for the void growing in you,

And I think you need a higher power to fix the imminent emptiness you’re facing.

Do you want me

Or are you seeking an affirming love to claim as your own?

Can you tell the difference?
