I wish I could give you the world,

But I can’t.

I can only give you what I have

Which isn’t much.


I’ll give you my broken,

My jealousy,

My lonely,

And my everything else.


I wish I could promise you forever.

Part of me wants to lie and tell you I can,

And the other part wants me to tell the truth.

So I’m stuck giving you half truths and half lies.


I’m broken.

I lie and say that I’m not,

But every day I fall further from who I am.

I wish I could be put together.


I’m jealous.

I don’t want you thinking about other people.

In a perfect world I would be the only one

But my world isn’t perfect.


I’m a hypocrite.

I want to tell you I only have eyes for you,

But that would be a lie.

That’s why I can’t promise forever.


My heart breaks more beautifully

When I’m with you

Than when I’m alone,

And I love every minute of it.


My world is messy.

There is always chaos in my mind,

But you choose to be part of the mess.

I love my world when you’re in it.
