This isn't the time to run away
Nor is it the time to hide
they say "use your whole heart
and take a dive"
I forgot the past while I lay in your arms
you partially held me
became my blanket for the meantime
I swam in you and you in I
threw caution to the wind
I didn't think that eventually I'd cry
well I knew I would eventually cry but my brain
and my heart hadn't made it that far yet.
I forgot about the boundaries
and entered unchartered territory
I went places that I shouldn't have gone
because I desired you more than anything
you occupied places in my heart that
should have been left alone
but I unlocked the door for you
and here you'll stay forever
I still get shivers when I hear your voice
And your energy makes me feel like I'm a boss
you see the thing that attracted me the most
is that you picked me up when I was lost.
I fell into you even though I knew the cost.
Now my heart will always be thirsty for you.
Like damaged hair it became porous.
I don't blame you though. And surprisingly
enough I don't even blame me.
We saw a chance to steal a goal
but ended up stealing things we couldn't keep.
For a moment I owned the property,
even if in secret. But the bank took you back
and put foreclosure on my feelings.
Now I'm left scrambling here and there.
I gotta roll my sleeves down and brush off
these lingering feelings. This isn't going to be easy because
I will still be me and you will still be you. Its like trying to get
away from a walking advertisement as big as the ones in times
sqaure advertising someone whose perfect for you.
But that reality is unreal so I put one foot in frount of me
and slowly start to move.....
