Ice and Desire – Half loved

Men have been intrigued with the idea of you

Yet never pursued the reality of you

For your heart lay beneath heaps of insecurity and mounds of untold stories

You’ve been loved in fragments and halves

Never have they loved all of you

You’ve never been loved as a whole

And John Legend never lets you forget that that’s actually possible

And today you stand in forgotten replies

And unsent text messages

Waiting for a truth that cannot find you

There’s an “I love you” stuck on your lips

Because you almost fell in love with these men

Who never fully grasped the concept of you

And never really loved you like they should have

You almost fell in love

Until you tested for depth and none came close to finding you.
