Aching Paper

You are making me nervous 
I can feel the perspiration flowing from the side of my face
Producing a long tiny line of water here and there
I'm debating weather I should write my book report on your perfectly straight lines
I'm thinking about how much you'd be torn if I erased your jagged edges 
Staring at the small three circles towards the left of your body
Sends a wonderful sensation down my spine
I can tell that you are trying to change my mind
I can tell you don't want me to write on you
I can tell you are pleading on the inside
Now what do I do.
I'm looking at you and I can't explain why I'm doing this
Should I change my mind
Has my feelings changed for you today
Gazing at my name in big bold letters at the top of the page
Shows me that you are in more pain than you were before
Torn on the inside, but not broken
I see that everything is divergent now and I'm hurting your soul
Your once white body with blue lines has changed
You are not the same
You look old and rusty
Now you're wrinkled with gray lines instead of blue lines
Tears are bleeding from my eyes on the inside and out
I can't stop this pain I have put you through
I know this thing we have will never last
I now know that this was and is your fate
I mustn't write on you, not now not ever
This isn't the way things are supposed to go
I know I can't change the past, but for now
Be safe, run away
Don't turn back
I'm begging you, please
I'm setting you free
And as you're running down the street, I can feel a tiny tear forming in the center of my tearing eye
