Elastic Heart

It is difficult to have a relationship with people.

There are struggles every moment.

You see the people you care about sad

And want to hold them and protect them

And they want to be left alone.

They need you to be there for them

But you don’t know how to reach them.


You try to hold on,

And they push you away.

You try to let go,

And they hold on to you with a vicelike grip.


You say yes

And they say no

You walk away,

And they say, “Please don’t go.”


They tell you they hate you

So they could break your heart

And then when it is night time

They tell you, “I love you so.”


They make you laugh

They make you cry

They make you scream

They make you lie

Because you would do anything to protect them

And help them through


That there is not much you would not do.
