Love Me, Not

Love Me, Not

It’s hard to believe but I swear it be true You think me deranged as I say this unto you But not loving you is truly how much I love you Some make their fates, we were handed ours Played by life and plunged into this whirlpool of disaster Or maybe it’s just us seeking […]
