“Catch 22"

I love you, but I can’t stand you

You know I love you
I just can’t stand you
(Sometimes)
You piss me off like no other
But when you need somebody
I don’t want you to look any further

We have different views
Different beliefs
It took me time to see
What we could and couldn’t be

You know I love you
Know you’ll always be in my heart
Know I loved you right from the start
Know I would’ve bought that ring
Got down on one knee
And done whatever I could
To be whatever you need

But you know-
Damn, can’t nobody get under my skin
Like you
Make me want to throw my phone
Like you
Make me fall apart like you
You know I love you
But you know I can’t stand you
When you tell me things could always be worse
When four IVs have been in my arm
When they brought me back from the dead
When Brian almost wasn’t Brian anymore

When you tell me to go to someone else
After I used the rest of my mental strength to crawl to you
Damn, I can’t stand you sometimes
Screaming for you to get out of my mind
Wondering how you snuck in my heart
5 years ago
But I don’t want you anywhere else…

Brian — The Man Behind The Pen

Recently, a man used my name as if it were a weapon. I am who I am, and this is my journey.
