YOU fill my cup halfway,
I have to give YOU more credit,
Allowing YOU the oblivious,
When I know, YOU know it all,
YOU know…it’s obvious,
I thought…
I need to believe YOU,
I’m afraid YOU don’t believe me,
“You suck,” was all YOU could reply,
“I didn’t surprise YOU,” was my reply,
What we have is a mess,
A little too REAL,
The future…not promised,
Now…what it is,
My heart reserved, cautious,
YOUr heart…not yet mine,
Little by little we step,
All for disjointed goals,
YOUr face stains my memories,
My words stain YOUr brain,
It has…
My heart…YOUrs…possibly,
YOUrs…we’ll see.
