Blissfully Painful 


I love the way you text me just to say

I love you

The way you ignore me when you don’t

Get your way

The way your smile drives me crazy

Yet your evil eyes keep me

From sinking in deeper

Your touch melts me in your arms

And in an instance your words solidify me

I don’t know whether to be happy

Or disappointed because I can’t get

Up and leave

This love has trapped me

Ultimately

I love it all

The good and the bad

The pleasure and the pain

I don’t want to give you up

Even though I know I should

These are the times when I’m just content

Living in this blissfully painful situation

Not expecting anything

Just hoping..for your affection
