What I Want


Is this what i want?
Being a victim of love
Bathing in tears all day long
Not hoping ever to be strong
Embracing pain everyday
Everyday of my life
Waking everyday to see strife
Pain is now my friend
Sorrow my mate
Is that what i want?
Is that the meaning of love?
Suffering in order to gain
Gainning nothing but pain
If thats the meaning of love
Then love does not exist
Thats not what i want
What i want is to be me
Me and love
