An issue which is affecting me right now- thought I would do something with it.

I can see that I am hurting you.
How painful is it? Very?
What sound does your heart make when I break it?
Is it loud and angry?
Or quiet and pathetic?
Is it the same sound as my heart makes when you break it?
When I know what you want, yet I can’t give it to you.
I see it breaking through your love-worn skin,
Beating before slowing down and dying.
I wish I could give you what you want, believe me I do,
I just really can’t.
I can’t love you, even if I wanted to.
I just can’t.
