And suddenly,
All the smiles
You bring to my face
Turn to frowns.
And I realize now
That I have
In a love
That was fraudulent,
One sided,
Not there.
Due to the fact
That you
Were too scared.
But baby,
I’m afraid too.
But I took the leap,
In the deep end
While you stayed asleep.
Safely on the shore,
Yelling words of encouragement.
But I want more.
I want truth.
I want your heart.
As soon as you noticed
You started to depart.
You locked it away.
I guess I’m just not worth
The attempt
To stay.
And maybe you’ll regret,
After the fall.
Wake up and see,
That love is worth
It all.
