Sad love

She loved him, with all her heart.
Was silent, didn’t want him to know.
She loved him with all her heart
and she suffered every time
when she talked to him and she couldn’t
tell him what she felt.
She was coming home, always sad
and she cried every night
because she knew she must be silent.

Sad love
when he doesn’t know
Sad love
when the heart is crying
Sad love
when only her loves.

She loved him, quietly.
Not saying anything to anyone.
She loved him deeper every day
and she knew if she didn’t end this
her heart will break because she couldn’t
tell him about her feelings.
She packed her bags and left
to never return to the place,
where she loved with sad love.

Seeking

You wanted to be with me
just to make sure you deserved somebody.
You wanted to be with me
to fight this constant depression
to feel accepted
because you didn’t want to be alone.
I didn’t want such love,
which you were seeking in me.
I don’t want that happiness,
which you’re seeking in me.
I don’t want this support,
which you’re seeking in me.
I don’t want this joy,
which you’re seeking in me.
I don’t want this meaning of life,
which you’re seeking in me.
You need to find yourself first.
