Wanting You

Dedication: To Anna for the years of torment. Thank you.

Wanting You

Wanting you
What is this hold that you have over me?
Even though you will tease me and taunt me and lead me on
I still hold an uncanny hope that there is a future.
Why can I not just turn my back on you and walk away?
You know that I love you, and how that love has endured.
So much patience and time and longing.
So many sleepless nights filled with visions of a future
That I know will never really come.
I do not understand why I accept your promises
And your lies
I accept them without doubt as the truth.
But I do not care anymore.
All I want is you.
