Stuck Between Two Hearts

THIERS A DAGGER IN WHITCH A HEART CAN’T DEFY OR WITH AN EYE TO CRY. THE HURT IS STUCK BETWEEN THE WORD GOOD BYE. I HAVE A HUNGER WITH A NEED THAT CANNOT LIE. I’M FEEDING FEELINGS THAT CONTINUE TO DIE. I HIDE BEHIND A SMILE BECOMING A DISCISE, AS THE RIVER IN HIS EYES BECOMES A TIDE. I KNOW ITS NOT FAIR LEADING HIM ALONG WITH FEELINGS I DON’T BARE. THIERS SO MUCH I CANNOT SHARE AND I DON’T DARE. HE SLEEPS AT NIGHT WHILE I STAY AWAKE AND ACHE FOR A FEELING THAT JUST WON’T BRAKE. WHEN HE CALLS MY NAME IN HIS SLEEP I SHAKE. I WISH I FEEL WHAT I DON’T BUT I CAN’T AND WON’T YOU ALREADY HAVE MY HEART, EVEN IF OUR LIVES ARE MILES APART. I LOVE YOU MORE THAN THE ONE I TRY TO ADORE. WHY CAN’T HE SUBSTITUTE A NEED FOR YOU? WHY CAN’T I FEEL FOR HIM THE WAY I FEEL FOR YOU? I’M AT ME KNEES, WRIST IN HOLY PLEAS. I KNOW HE SEES. I CAN’T PRETEND IT’S NOT YOUR NAME I SAY AT NIGHT, OR THAT I’M NOT GIVING IN TO THIS FIGHT. HE HAS TO WEEP. I’M WAY TO DEEP. SO MANY EMOTIONS I WANT TO KEEP. PLEASE LEAVE MY MIND. HE DESEARVES A LOVE THAT’S NOT BLIND AND SOMEONES WHOS PAST IS LEFT BEHIND. I’M STUCK BETWEEN TO HEARTS, OF WHAT USE TO AND WHAT IS NOW, AND ITS TARING ME APART.
