Is this supposed to be love?
My head hurts.
I feel like throwing up.
And I don’t know what you’re thinking.
I’m told I should say the words in my heart.
But what if you don’t care?
I feel like this is a cliff hanger.
I’m just standing around like an idiot.
Is this supposed to be love?
Say something.
Your silence is killing me slowly.
Heart pounding.
Hands sweating.
Head hurting.
Throat closing.
Eyes twitching.
Just waiting for you to say.
You love me too.
I know there’s pain.
In everything you do.
But this is the kind of thing.
I don’t know if I want to go through.
Is this supposed to be love?
When I can’t feel my brain.
Is this supposed to be love?
When I’m just going insane.
Just say those three words…
I love you.
To me.
And then I’ll say.
I love you too.
Is this supposed to be love?
When I’m holding you in my arms.
Is this supposed to be love?
When I’m lifted off the ground.
Is this supposed to be love?
When I’m so happy and I’m found.

When I wrote this I didn't know the end. Heck, I still don't know. But I'm hoping for a happy ending. Sorry if there are some gramatical errors or anything like that I was writing it in the moment and I didn't want to lose my emotion. But I'm still thinking about this sick, strange, yuck, happy, emotional, sentimental, idiotic feeling. Is this supposed to be love?
