I will not trust you with my life
nor burden you with wants and desires
I will not give too much in sacrifice
or fight all of your fires.
I will not linger on thoughts of you
or fall to rapture and passions thrall
nor will I ever be untrue
but I may not answer when you call.
For you and I don’t love the same
and I only have myself to blame
for when I ask you “what can I do?”
and you always say “Nothing.”
I always have to stop myself (this is true)
because, just in case, I’d do everything.
