You pull me in then push me away.
Build me up then break me down.
Our love is so confusing...
and I can't stand it.

I can't stand it...

The way you steal my heart so effortlessly.

The way you are the better part of me.

The way you make me smile.

How easily you can make me cry.

You build me up,

Break me down.

Watch me fall,

Hit the ground.

Make me hurt,

You walk away.

I try to stand on my own two feet.

Find confidence; Don't let me sway.

I'm doing great without you,

My life is moving forward.

You come back.

I break once again.

You find your way back into my heart,

And start building me up.

I know I'm going to fall again.

But I just can't let go of you.

I can't stand it...

That I can't stand without you.

Hats off!! So clearly you have put the emotions, the words were like ornaments. Very good. I have never read two poems of a reader in one go. You are the one whose I read two poems now. Keep going. :)
