Your Waiting Game

Say no with no fear
Say yes with an open heart
If you wish to say something!

You are electricity
Running your high-voltage current
To every blood in my veins
I shouldn’t have told you?

You are elegant
Eyes innocent, but wild
Lips kind, but cold
I shouldn’t have said that?

You are a Gothic masterpiece to behold
I easily lost my mind
I am burning into flames
I shouldn’t have let it out?

Nothing is as soothing as your presence
The thoughts of your tender fingers 
Circumvolving my fragile body
Bring merry to my stomach
I shouldn’t have shown you my inside?

What a river you are?
I thought I could drink you all
You kept flowing on
More than I could ever gulp
I shouldn’t have given it all?

I thought it was worth it
You listened when every ear was deaf
I won your attention
Time is jealous of your waiting game
It troubles me now!
