Need [Wrong People]

I’m the woman who gets her heart broken,

Because I allow all the wrong people in.

I somehow manage to find the ones who need;

Need love,

Need attention,

Need someone to just fucking care.

I take them in and do what I do best,

Break myself apart to try and fix others.

I’ll see the good and avoid the red flags.

I’ll love until it hurts, and then give more;

More love,

More attention,

More, “I just fucking care.”

I’ll tear myself down to nothing,

Until just breathing starts to hurt,

Because I know what it feels like to need;

Need love,

Need attention,

Need someone to just fucking care.

I’ll do everything I can to be for others,

What I have never once had for me.

And when the end comes and it’s just me,

Sitting all alone in my sadness and red flag remains,

I’ll tell myself never again will I choose the one who needs;

Needs love,

Needs attention,

Needs someone to fucking care.

I’ll swear I’m done and say I demand better,

But I’ll find the broken man in need

Because, “I just fucking care.”
