I’ve Tried

I’ve tried
There comes a point when you just don’t know what else to do
Please, don’t question that I’ve lost the affection for you
Because I still am enamored by everything about you
I look at you and I know that you will always have a part of me
But as we grown and evolved some problems were never solved
Don’t get it twisted, I’m not trying to run
You know me, I really would rather stand firm
Cause you’re my grandest accomplishment that I worked so hard to earn
But what do I do when I can’t get you to connect
Rather than opening up about what’s going on you continue to deflect
You constantly reassure me that nothing is wrong
That our love is still strong
And blah, blah, blah, blah
I’ve tried and at this point I know something else has your attention
Some part of me wants to know but I don’t need the apprehension
Shit is rough for the both of us and I love you too much
What else do I else do?
Now, I’m a firm believer that I am a part of the problem
It takes two to tango
I had time, not even going to deny
But the last thing I did was ever made you feel like you shouldn’t try
I was cold but reassuring
Often an asshole but confirming
That my love for you was real and you should never question how I feel
Yet, here we are with the roles reversed
And the opposite reality of the situation couldn’t be better rehearsed
I have tried
At this point I just don’t know what to do
Maybe giving you space is the best thing for you?
