    you surpress me,
    and entertain me.
    you give me the sun,
    and hate all wrapped up in a ball of your smile.
    and my heart struggles to see,
    what makes me continue to continue these things.
    cuz i find myself laughing,
    when really i should be crying.
    making my soul think that you are,
    something i can hold.
    only to find out,
    that you're filled with spikes.
    deflating my heart,
    every time i get close to you.
    you make me whole,
    and rip me apart.
    and i've yet to see,
    why these things must be.
    it's cuz i'm interested,
    in your world of music.
    taking me 10 different places,
    in only 4 minutes.
    and i fight to live in your skin,
    where every pain felt is hurt.
    cuz i want to drink you're love,
    to die in your hurt.
    but i'm squinting to see,
    why these things must be.
    it's like giving my words,
    the right to be words.
    and taking the opposite,
    and turning it into the re-opposite.
    and i know this can't be,
    cuz it's already that way.
    while you hurt me unphysically,
    but have me smiling outside.
    to show my reflection,
    that supposedly it's okay.
    when i know that,
    i only WANT it to be.
    just like i wanna wrap myself,
    in your silk smooth living.
    i find myself in casual cotton,
    living the typical female life.
    thinking typical could be more,
    than superficial to the eye.
    cuz my eyes show me you,
    providing me with protection.
    when i'm being abused,
    by my protector--or am i????????????
    i'm lost in my mind,
    and these emotions that you make me eat.
    and i've yet to see,
    why these things must be.
    my supernatural,
    is your soul of heart.
    not knowing fully,
    if we could experience it.
    by watching each other,
    and longing for nothing.
    knowing that we're 2 different people,
    living different lives.
    in different perspectives,
    with different lifestyles.
    cuz we're too different,
    to be the same.
    and we're the only peas in the pod,
    and the last 2 puzzle pieces missing.
    but we don't fit,
    instead we collide time and time agos.
    and i've yet to see,
    why these things must be.
    and i'm fighting to make it work,
    when i know the only prize is hurt.
    but i want the prize,
    cuz you're the bonus.
    for it takes darkness for me to see the light,
    so i guess you're the whale and i'm Jonas..........

    Sometimes we want the pieces to fit just right, and when they don't then what? I love the way you put this all together, very nicely done.
