Bound by Elizabeth Lawrence

I am selfish and childish

Out-of-turn, wildish

And still, here I stay at your feet

Your vanity is apparent

But my devotion is inherent

The balance clings you to me

Cruel and so brittle

Bitter and uncivil

Cold was the day we did meet

Trapped and constrained

In love have I changed

There is no will in me to be free

If you were kinder

Or if I were blinder

Two different people we’d be

So I worship your claws

You adore all my flaws

And in mutual pain we do cleave
