How can you be everything I want and be the death of me?
How can you say no to me, but your eyes are calling for my soul?
Saying today you miss me, the next I’ll never know
I wish for many things, like forever with you
Words to express how I feel, never taken seriously.
I fear loneliness, the haunting from my past
I crave solitude, if only it’ll be spent with you.
I know pain, or so I thought
But what pain is worst than not having you?
I say I’m not emotional, a tale well spun
Fix my reality, spend a day with me
I thought I was done with love
But love is every day spent with you.
Can’t you see the pain in my eyes?
The hurt in my voice, the sadness in my laughter
Some say they understand me, I’m void of a soul
But who needs a soul if I can’t find a mate?
If we never feel each other’s essence
Promise me at least you know how I felt
I pour out my heart on paper
Never to be spoken out loud.
