I'm not in Love

by Sapphirefly


I'm not in love with you

I just feel that if you leave tonight

I will be hollowed

Like a pumpkin cut and carved

There will be nothing inside my chest

No, I'm not in love with you

I'm not the type to love

But you can't leave me like this

Not when you know my blood will burst

And I will be empty

I feel my brain breaking with each of your footfalls

I'm not in love with you

I couldn't be

Our friendship was never like that

But I feel something else

Like the ball chain of my inner workings somehow

Curled itself around your belt loop

If you keep walking

You pull the plug on me

Not just us.

And no, I'm not in love with you

I couldn't be

It's just that somehow

You're the only hope for me.
