conversations with love, how one-sided

Fires rage and heat travels between us,
What once was so passionate and even sexy,
Has tuned into a destructive force,
We argue and yell,
Only to hear our own displeasures screamed back,
How can you be the same person I fell in love with,
How can you think romantic, Valentines day gestures can fix what is broke so especially?

I don’t tell you everything and I never have
Ask yourself, when’s the last you made me laugh
It’s either a thousand questions or a million accusations
If you’re not angry I’m convinced you can’t carry a conversation
You highlight my lack of effort instead of highlighting you
Take out the titles and tell me what exactly it is you do
“I just feel like” Aka your motto and most said line
God forbid your feelings ever come second to mine

There should be a we, an us,
But somehow it’s always a you or a me.
We’ve never been able to see eye to eye
Because we both know our perspectives are right.
She can’t do this, he doesn’t help with that.
The game is as tired as the two that play it,
And Jesus I’m so done with this
We can argue and fight, scream and rant to each other ,
But…why continue it fight over the same thing…

Sometimes I wish I could fall in love with you again
Go back to desperately wanting you to be more than a friend
I wish we weren’t so familiar with each other’s flaws
I wish monogamous relationships didn’t have so many God damn laws
I know should feel lucky, I know I should care a lot more
I know I should probably go back to who I was before
But what happens when being in love turns into just loving someone
What if I told you all this arguing is just because I don’t know if you’re the one…

This was done with Valentines Fall and we’re both really psyched how this came together, a conversation about love with two people on very different sides. 🙂

    This is really something I too am struggling with with my partner. Your post captured my own feelings perfectly and really made me think. Relationships aren’t always easy, especially long term ones bc circumstances can change, feelings can become easily overpowered by differences in opinions. Passion can be extreme. I always return to the idea that there is a thin line between live and hate. In the end I personally always chose love whether it’s up close and personal or detaching from a distance. Very well written and thought provoking, thank you!
