Bittersweet

Liah Morgan 2008 (KY)



The taste of you is bittersweet
It makes me want to walk away
It goes sour like food you don't eat
But part of me thinks it's satisfying in every way
Part of me tries to resist
This pain makes me weak
But part of me insists
this pain is all I need
I still can't bring myself to say
even though It's become a part of me
This pain is with me to say
Even though I hate it with a passion
But I still love it and It brings compassion
