Disordered attachment

“Disordered attachment “what is it you meant?
“Disordered attachment “by that…?
What is love when half of our time is spent making-up
And then the other is breaking-up.

Cause I can’t live with you!
…What do you want me to do?

“Disordered attachment “don’t you think… I feel it too…
“Disordered attachment “what the hell do you; want me to do…
Don’t you think I feel it too…?
When the pain of loving you
When the pain of loving you
Leaves car wreckage…
That can’t be found or put together again.

Not unless we just pretend
Cause I can’t live with you!
What do you want me to do?
“Disordered attachment “just be friends
Sorry, I just can’t: Sorry, I just cant
Be your best friend
Your best disassociated friend

Cause I can’t live with you!
…What do you want me to do?
Give up too…

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
