I Tried Not to Love You
You remind me of all the darkest things in life
Like the sunrise and the tears I cried before I met you
You remind me of such a beautiful, dark place.
A place where I'm okay
A place where flowers bloom in the darkness
And seeing you sad brings out the sun.
You are a paradox
You bring life from the broken
And death to the happy.
You are everything I've ever dreamed of
You are the waves unleashing destruction
On the calm shores of the sea.
You are the sun that sets in my bones
And the galaxies that rest in my eyes
You are all that I think of.
Your heart lives inside of me.
