Obsession

Tell me you love me,
I hate you, I do.
Your speech, magniloquent,
as you tell me I’m wrong.
Say it again,
say it slow.
Maybe if you sound it out,
I’ll understand.

Hear me curse you,
helplessly,
hear me scream.
A magician of excuses,
pull them out your sleeve.
But lie there, do nothing
whilst I cry.
Do you like your tower?

Think of me,
once in a blue moon.
Condemn yourself,
just for a day or two.
Hold me tighter at 3am,
kiss me in your sleep.
Tell me you love me,
I love you too.
