You Call It Love

You Call It Love

You let her cry her lungs out
You call it love
You let her heart shrink to the minimum
You call it passion
You let her soul yearn for you
You call it belonging
You let her suffocate in her thoughts
You call it a breath
You let her store fears in her eyes
You call it a mystery
You let her break every day
You call it affection
You let her mind get numb
You call it warmth
You let her crave happiness
You call it to desire
You let her sleep in pain
You call it worship
You let her yell the silence out
You call it peace
You let her disguise the hurt
You call it intimacy
You let her run away from you
You call it a betrayal.
