One step forward, two back

I know what it’s like to be led astray.

I know what it feels like to be pushed away.

You don’t expect anything from anyone but the world…when I do my best to give it to you, it’s never enough.

You know how to pull on my heartstrings.

You know how to make my heart sing.

Getting close to you is hard but when you give me an inch you turn back a mile.

A battle between heart and mind, back and forth is a tug-o-war.

We know that what we have isn’t like anything we’ve experienced before.

We know that what we have is preparing us for war.

The build up is worth it and I am always learning to be patient but to die by those hands would be a death ever so sweet.
