Dent Moses

Your Love is Not Enough

Always out of things
To keep me coming around,
My green heart has
dripped on me and
Ruined that clean feeling.

Rushed and in pain,
Your love is not enough
I'm still giving up.

I stay away
She won't feel me leave,
I stay afraid
She won't feel me breathe,
Lying every time
I'm hiding behind laughter,

I heard the words that I trust,
Chains forever waiting just for me.
I feel sick,
Tired of the breathing
Something I can't change the way.

    Dent, I am probably a bit dense, but I read it a few times and am not getting it. Is this about a break-up?

      It's hard to explain, it's like... say one person loves someone, and the other person loves them too but also just wants to die. They're trying to not want to, but really they still intend to. And because of that they struggle to be cared for because how do you tell someone "I love you unconditionally but my head says I have to kill myself." It would be unfair to let them care. but then when you're trying to get better you need to care and connect with people, all the while plotting a betrayal. It's dirty and depressing but I guess that's what it's about.

        Dent, no wonder I did not get it at first. It is pretty complicated. But thank you for your explanation. I apologize for having had to ask. I will look out for your next poem and hope to do better! :-)
