Insecure Lover

I’m well outside of me, but inside,
inside, I’m holding a question
and answer
session with my self-esteem.
You’ve got my heart in the picture hung
above the fireplace.
When I study your smile, I fall back,
back to the only thing I know.
If you’ve got nothing left to lose,
why do you stay?
I’m not that exciting.
I taste forever in a choice
of not seeking revenge.
I love you because it’s
all want to know.
But don’t get a big head;
The hardest thing I’ve
ever had to say is I love you;
we both know how love goes.
It drains us until there’s nothing left.
