It’s a new year,
and I think it’s time to proceed with caution.
Next time I get the feels,
next time I want a body next to mine,
I want to think before I act.
I want to be real with myself.
I want to be honest.
Am I going to hurt someone?
Am I going to break a heart?
‘Cause this time around, I don’t want to be the reason for anyone else’s pain.
I’d rather let the loneliness hurt me instead.
I’d rather be a victim of unrequited love.
I’d rather sit with myself until I find a partner that I want permanently glued to my frame.
