Selfish Love

This poem is for my partner. I don't think I'm good enough for him, he puts up with so much and he is always there for me no matter what happens.

Selfish Love

You’re my life, you’re my saviour,
My deliverance from the dark,
But all I do, day and night,
Is stab you in the back.

I wish words would come back to me,
Leave them left unsaid,
I wish that I could be someone else,
A person you deserve.

I’ll shout and scream for no reason,
And then push it all on you,
Through it all you stand there tall,
The words can’t reach your ears.

In the end it’s up to you,
Whether you stay or go,
Cause I know it’ll be the little things,
That’ll be the end of us.

If only I could keep it shut,
We’d both get on so well,
Most of the time I’m not mad at you,
I’m pissed off at myself.

If only I could just grow up,
I’d be more bearable,
And even though I say these things,
I’m selfish through it all.

I can’t bear the thought of losing you,
Can’t comprehend my death,
Because losing you my only love,
Would rob me of my breath.
