Is it selfish to say
that I’d rather not watch you grow
if it means outgrowing me?

Of course, it is

and of course, I’d love for you to move on
past this tangled mess we’ve made
but I haven’t quite found
my own way out yet
and I’d rather not be alone.

I love you

and I know it’s selfish to say
that any girl would be lucky to have you
but I’m the only girl who deserves you,

I know

but I can’t help this feeling
and I can’t help this rage that festers
for every girl that looks your way,
for every girl that dares to say
you’re safe with her.

I don’t feel safe
with you with her
without me.

I don’t feel safe.

Hi, I’m Emily and I like to think of myself as a kaleidoscope, but one that ranges from a spectrum of commitment issues to emotional hoarding, all circling around varying shades of anxiety. People say I have trouble ‘staying present’ and I’ve found that daydreaming becomes significantly less acceptable in your 20’s.
