Paramour

I try to push you away,

try to tell you stop,

But

you keep pushing,

keep prodding my heart.

 

I’m a criminal,

I know I need to stop and do the right thing,

But

when you’re arms wrap around me,

I know I can’t.

 

It is an endless cycle.

I’m stuck on rinse and repeat.

 

I’m not yours anymore,

so why do you make me feel like I still am?

 

I try to resist,

try not to make waves,

But

I’m suddenly getting in the way,

suddenly messing up.

 

You tell me it’s okay,

tell me I was just caught up in the moment,

But

I know that it isn’t because,

I know I’d do it again.
