A Better Way

#1 Post by SnickleFrittes » 14 Aug 2013, 09:01

we aren’t fighting because we hate each other
if that were the case,
we would sit in silence
it is because we love each other
the pain is too much to hold back

so I throw her to the ground

I wish i wouldn’t have
there must be a better way
a way that wouldn’t make me feel guilty afterward

I grasp her cheeks between my fingers
I tell her she really fucked up this time
that I am fucking pissed now
and that I hate her

I wish I wouldn’t have
there must be a better way
a way that wouldn’t make me feel guilty afterward

when I let go
she slides back away from me
and slaps me in my face
it wasn’t hard enough for her
she slaps me again
a lot harder this time
I take it though

I wish I wouldn’t have
there must be a better way
a way that wouldn’t make me feel guilty afterwards

love is never the better way
