Entered into my life with charming audacity
Coaxing sweet nothings one couldn’t possibly deny
Gentle nudges with ever-growing persistence
A somebody who happened to glance at my existence.
A fresh face sported a lasting blush
Hearing words that are of necessary hush
Thrusting an innocent mind into a world so wild
Gone is the naivety that was once held on so tight.
Eyes scroll eagerly across the words you’ve expressed
Lips curl up with a knowing smile, so faint
Heart thumps with a pounding joy so true
The mind hoping to soon unite with you.
Then comes along a cruel twist of fate
The bubble around pops and leaves me desolate
Everything halts and trickles away
The genuine smile once etched onto my face
Washed off by the tears that left its trail.
A conflicted mind, a confounded heart
A burning will to just stay apart
Willful struggles to get through this ache
The impending choice leaving the soul in despair.
Forbidden words that long to bleed through sealed lips
Desperately clenched fists and punctured palms
To stop me from succumbing to your charms
The stinging burn screams at me to stay away.
The need to hear your voice so strong
To know if you’ve been thinking of me all along
The longing hope I have to be considered
Solely in my memories it exists in despondence.
Those agonising tears that drop in distress
At the ease at which you can show ignorance
Blessing me the chance to forget and reset
Fooling myself into believing I could actually feign neglect.
And then you leave me hanging by a thread
To run back to you whenever you expect
The infatuated pull struggles to fade away
Crying prayers that I never have to go through this again.
My destructive mind pleading you to stay away
The stubborn in me refuses to say it to your face.
How, I covet the life before my world revolved around you
But I’m thankful you taught me that this was all too good to be true.
