as open as you try to be
as much as you say you love me
i still don’t understand why you would leave me here.

i know it’s not my fault
i know it’s certainly not your fault
but i still don’t understand why we blame ourselves.

i don’t want to talk
i don’t want to tell my stories
i don’t want you to think you’ll lose me the way
i’ve lost you.

even if something is wrong
even if i am losing my battle
i have to make sure you win yours.

that’s what love is
it’s beyond a touch and a hug
it’s not about kissing and holding hands
it is a dream war.
