For me, this ballad is long overdue.
The darkest area inside of me
Is the longing of what I feel so true.
The longing to love those with a free
Heart with no strings of value.
Attached is only my guarantee
To love you with the old and the new
And doing so unconditionally.
I’ll leave my door open, never for few,
But for all who need to be
Loved by someone with the power to undo
The burdens they carry and to see
That there is someone whose only view
Is to love them oh so willingly
With a chance to find a new avenue
And to have one make them a cup of tea.
Yet, the ballad for a two
Is one that, underneath, is solitary.
For I selfishly love others into
Loving me with the same degree.
How wrong is it to pursue
One with love just because I feel lonely?
I am willing to love anyone, just one who
Will love me like a devotee.
This is wrong of me to love through
The lonely pain that I lock with key.
But the right love is only about you,
I just need to learn how to love you selflessly.
