Sometimes, self-awareness is also self-punishing.
To know that we’re here, not moving
To know that you’re bound to one direction, and me to another
To know what you want and what you need
To know what I need and what I want
To know that I cannot consistently provide either of those
To know that you cannot consistently provide either of those
To know what you deserve
To know what I deserve
To know that we share such strong passions and emotions
And to know that we cannot be together
Sometimes, the most potent and inescapable way to punish oneself is to just be aware.
