I love you,
You give me purpose,
Without you, I wouldn't have come this far.
You make me accountable,
Telling me all I have is potential.
I care for you,
Because of the things you've done,
I gain perseverance from your presence.
I learn when you punish me,
I'll get harder, stronger.-
I pine for you,
When you leave me hollow inside,
You just want to teach me control,
I always try not to disappoint.
And I reflect onerously on any complaint.-
I question you,
As my logic contradicts you.
Then you soothe me into submission,
With the promise of results,
Tacked alongside your insults.-
I resist you,
Before your arms reach around,
To smother my dreams with ugly beliefs.
I'm not sure if you're right,
I haven't the willpower to fight.-
I abhor you,
But I've already let you in,
Is there anything I can do to force you out?
Rejecting you with all I have left,
Craving peace, of which I am bereft.-
I refuse you,
With your twisted thoughts,
That I can see now are so very wrong.
I'll try not to let you rise,
This time it's your demise.
