I tend to love broken people 

The ones with scars and wounds 
From habits and heartbreaks 
Optimism tells me subconsciously they'll be better soon 
I reach in for a hug and get clawed in my heart
And tell them it's okay 
It will be better, we will grow before you fall apart
I'll stay no matter what at the end of the day
Then at night when they're sleeping 
I'm wide awake crying 
Why am I weeping ?
Why is my heart dying ?
Asking myself why am I getting hurt 
What did I do to deserve this broken love 
Tell myself flowers do grow from the dirt 
But I love and reciprocate hate is there a God above? 
They don't mean to hurt me
They will grow with the love I tend 
Maybe my love is so strong , their broken heart it will mend 
Then when they awake I get stabbed in my back 
I ask myself 
What did I do to deserve this wrenching love?
Well maybe it could be worse then.. I realize
I loved the broken person
