You Can Love a Bad Person

You can love a bad person

You can allow yourself to be swept away

But that doesn’t make it okay

They mean well, yes

But they don’t give a shit enough to communicate

You wait up

Wanting their name to appear on your phone

Wanting them to come around the corner

But none of that happens

You make up excuses,

You try to come to logical conclusions,

But the truth is:

You love him and he is flawed

You love him and he’s a shitty friend

You love him and he used you

You love him and he ignores you

You love him and he still can’t see his wrongs

You love him and he tells you he doesn’t care

You love him and prioritize him over loving yourself

You can love a bad person

But you cannot make them love you

You cannot let your heart become second to the attention they give you when she isn’t around

You can love a bad person

But you have to decide you to walk away

Or compromise the love and respect you have for yourself
