Complicated - Poem by Rebecca Pepper

Don't do this to me I beg and plead
And then I realise I've let you succeed
You didn't need to hurt me, no not at all
You just needed me to feel what it's like to fall

We really are pathetic aren't we, if this is how we are
Painting each other's demise scar by bloody scar
We play cat and mouse but no one can see
Just how violent this game can truly be

Watching closely as the other makes her move
Waiting for that opportune moment to try and remove
All traces of memories soon to be repeated
Once our most vicious audience has been seated

We play with each other like love sickened fools
We live by the guidelines but abide no rules
None can ever really try to pull us apart
Because we were never together in the start

Our relationship is complicated at the best
We sneer at each other but still together we rest
These words do nothing to describe the bliss felt
When we sew up, and wrap up each attack we've dealt

We try to take everything the other stands for
It makes us feel complete but then we thirst for more
So we are right back at the beginning, so primal in actions
Chipping away at each other just to show an attraction
