I Want To Be The Reason You Can’t Sleep At Night

I don’t want you to love me because I’m good for you,
because I say and do all the right things.
Because I’m everything you have been looking for.

I want to be the one you didn’t see coming.
The one who gets under your skin.
Who makes you unsteady.
Who makes you question everything you have ever believed about love.

I want to be the one who makes you feel reckless
and out of control;
the one you are infuriatingly and inexplicably drawn to.

I don’t want to be the one who tucks you into bed;
I want to be the reason why you can’t sleep at night. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
