your venom is deceptively sweet
i fill up & up & up
until i'm poisoned by my own greed
we both break & fight & seethe
you're cool to the eye but i'm burning up inside,
crying and crying

so i orbit from afar until i can't stand being cold
i'm drawn in once again, floating in the tides of this cycle
circling, circling,

i miss you, i miss you, i miss us, i say;
i fall again and you make me dreamy
you speak sugar-coated phrases
i know i shouldn't stay

(you're sweet, it's only to tease me)

i beg and beg for honesty
but all you give is sweets
they satisfy temporarily
but they melt away when i realize they're meant to pacify me

i miss you, i miss us, i hate you, i say;
you use the same words that were used against me by my father,
but i stay

i forgive hurtful words
and return faithfully
i know we're wrong, i'm too naive for my own good
but you're sweet
it's only to tease me
