I could feel your presence around me despite the fact that we live a thousand miles away
Now, I’ll have to question myself for trusting someone who just came out of the blue
Living with whatever you say is all that I can do for I can’t really know what you actually meant
There’s just one way out.
There was a time when every word we exchanged seemed divine
Like a pulchritude unfathomable
I could feel myself become anew, for the efforts I put in;
Were something I never did for anyone else
I felt the urge to reveal my darkest secrets
And there I came, running towards you
I knocked the door, expecting you to unlatch it to the world where I hadn’t been
I was bemused, lost in paradise
You weren’t there for me when I needed you the most.
But there’s so much more I want to say. So much I need the courage to express.
How could I tell you, love, every word you speak is entwined within me
I wish I could play you the melody my heart weaves
But, I constantly find myself not telling you more.
It’s like you’ve been trying to tell me something that I need to know
But there’s something that’s stopping you from doing so and I can feel it
Secrets between ourselves are not going to stand strong as they’ll be out someday and
I’ll just pretend to believe that everything is alright.
At the end, all I do is giving myself to you, piece by piece.
I may not have the fortitude to say everything, but I promise to never stop trying.
Never stop trying to turn these texts into something more;
And turn this everyday conversation to last a lifetime.
