I’m being greedy, I know
But suddenly I want to see your face show
Though I’ve never even seen it so
I feel your hurt so far away
And it makes me wish I could take that pain away.
I’ll hold you like you haven’t been held.
Gently as you sleep.
I’d like to tell you how my feelings are unparalleled,
But despite my writings, I’d rather things like that be felt
Because I’ve heard so many words in the past
To find that nothing has lasted
So I won’t take this for granted
This is just me trying to be candid.
Pain is dreaming of you
Over and over and over again.
I’m trying to wash off this stain
But it bleeds in vain.
Don’t appear in vain
I don’t want to see you ever again.
Jealousy is a terrible disease
But I can’t help but wonder
If she knows you like I do
When you’re nervous
Or when you’re pleased
I’m being pathetic but please don’t laugh
Whilst my heart is being cut in half
Let’s wrap this up
And call it a day.
I’ve cried enough
And I’ve done more than enough
So please, let’s just call it a day.
I didn’t do it to hurt
But that I couldn’t cure my own hurt.
It’s not out of lack
But rather my own lacking.
How egoistical must you be
To make it about you?
I hate lying
But I hate it even more
When you give me no choice
But to lie.
I’m lying to keep your truth
Whilst denying my own truth.
Sweet, like candy.
You call out to me.
It’s a shame that I can’t swallow you whole
How unfortunate that I have to share pieces of your soul.
Would it be a crime if I stole?
I once waited for an apology
But now I don’t need your sorry.
I can’t even return to the naive me
To pretend to believe your sob story.
Why don’t you save your acting,
For someone who still worries?
Let’s steal moments,
In a day full of errands.
Or whisper secrets,
In a room full of people.
I promise I won’t run,
As long as you can find.
