I'm flattered but the emotion is getting to me.
You speak, but I can no longer listen
To anything you're sayingbetween crossed fingers
and eyes gazing down. I don't believe you.
I'm sorry but the pain is becoming too much.
Now we are something bigger than the two of us,
Holding on to the instability while trying to stand--
Partaking in what can only be insanity.
Stop there. You're getting too close.
You know it's not fair. Suddenly I'm slipping,
With your arms conveniently open,
Whispering to me if I get too scared.
In the darkness, I see your eyes.
Constantly loomingalways watching.
Each step has to be carefully laid
For traps have been set near the places I stand.
Please go. You've outlived your welcome in my forgiveness.
Basking in a worn out tenderness--
It was never yours to begin with.
May your next words be Goodbye or I don't want to hear it.
Excuses. Again, I am hearing.
Tired of leaning on what little hope I manage
To grow. Leave now. Your presence is slowly
draining. I feel my life slipping away...
These uncharted waters are no longer a mystery;
But I don't know my way back to shore.
Don't crythough I drown in your darkness,
I feed off your pain.
Please don't. You're acting wide eyed and innocent.
Like the blame falls on my shoulders.
You were the lamb, and I? No longer the dove.
You don't realize the damage you have caused.
But still, I'm moved by your antics,
Intrigued by your motionsjust give me a moment,
to think of a new way of swimming,
To make me somehow interesting again.
And still, I'm tugged by your current;
Caught in your mind gameslosing sense
Completely. And you smile because it was so easy,
So young and naïve...
I'm slowly dying by the pour of fascination.
In the spotlight, I melt instead of shine.
I must admit, this was all somehow invoking,
A tad bit exciting, but it must end.
Somehow, I was strong at the beginning
But now I am fadingin your presence,
I can't fight. No longer is it worth it,
