This is a result of listening to Halsey and Melanie Martinez while watching K-dramas about unrequited love, specifically 'Playful Kiss'. The story/poem/whatever you want to call it is something I've had in my Wattpad drafts for awhile.
This is about a one sided love bordering on obsession. The main character speaks about caring for their love and reminding them of their dreams. The line 'Its so easy to see, so hard to comprehend' is the main characters answer as to why they stay in this one sided love. As the MC helps their love through heartache and pain the once one sided love becomes what appears to be 'true love'. However insecurities and outside forces cause rifts in their relationship and the MC becomes the one who needs support. The MC feels as if they are drowning alone as their love shares empty halfhearted words. Realizing that it was still and always would be a one sided love the MC decides to move on and save themselves.
