I'm a complex paradox.


I want your attention,
but I want to isolate myself too.


I'm in a perpetual state of sadness
like only you can influence my moods.


And when you don't make me smile
I succumb to depression instead.


I wish I had control over myself,
but my obsession has taken over.


It's like I'm stuck on a seesaw
of emotions with you.


I'm prone to ups and downs,
never knowing constancy.


My feelings ebb and flow,
crashing against your actions.


If only I could let you go,
then maybe I would know stability.
