Lover

0

She’s never there for me when I need her.
Why won’t she just love me?

I have forgotten what her voice sounds like.
My body so desperately aches from the could touch of loneliness.

Tell me what life did to turn you against her.

I just wished that she loved me.
I just wished that I loved me.

I wonder why we lie and kid ourselves that time heals everything.
Time kills everything.

I just wish she could love me.

I release these words to this paper so they may be free.
I hope one day that you see them.
But even if you do, I know that you will never see me as deserving of your love.
