It hurts to see you everyday
And yet not seeing you hurts even worse.
It feels like a lump on my heart
Smothering me the more it grows
I smell your perfume on my bed
And thoughts of you invade my head
Every night I try to sleep
Every time I think deep.
I toss and turn and squeeze my eyes shut
I don’t want to look at the pillow that’s meant to be yours
Or feel the emptiness that’s here when you’re not.
I feel you for days and nights,
Your scent wraps itself around me.
It gets worse with every breath,
I wonder if you’re with Beth.
It feels right and wrong to want you this way
When you aren’t mine.
And if I can’t be yours now
I’ll wait here in the wings
Until you want me enough to walk away
Until you want me more than her
Until you want me by your side
I’ll be yours someday, if you let yourself walk away.
