With hindsight, I was more than blind
Lost without a clue
Thought I was getting carat gold, and what I got
Stuck inside the circumstances, lonely at the top
I've always been an introvert
You call, out of nowhere, just when I remember you were missing
The thought of you does nothing for me
. Is just a passing daydream
, like so many others that cross my mind.
I feel nothing for you
, though you almost make me.
I listen for hours. Your voice is soft and enchanting
. Your words are a pretty dance
that tickle the empty corners of my mind. So close to blooming with fire
, you touch a spot that sparks, but nothing more.
The embers sizzle, then die, once your voice fades.
I do not mean to keep you dancing
. To make you think I could really make your dream come true
. You lull me into your wishes. They feel soft and warm, a blanket
gently, easily smothering my true desires.
Your voice, your words, your need for me. They trickle through me like hot coffee
on the coldest of mornings. I feel appreciated
It is easy to say I could be with you. It would be easy to be with you.
But it isn't right
I don't want to take the easy way out
I don't want to feel content and secure.
I don't want you
You'll pull me in again
. The soothing of your voice will remind me you're good. All is good
Until it fades
And I, again, know the truth
You aren't what I need.
You can't make me happy.
Let me go
