A Cowards Love.
You were like the fresh blossom tulips in summer
The smell of perfect morning coffee
My nearly perfect one
You were good for me,
Or so I thought.
I wanted you
I wanted new
You were new.
Just the right smile, with the right words
You were like cool breeze that accompanied a rainy night.
You were ‘cold stone' with broken waffles and peanuts, just how I liked it.
You were sweet.
But you ran.
For everytime I reached out my hands to take yours, you would run.
Miles away into darkness, leaving me to unrest
What did I do?
What did I say?
You didn’t give me a chance to show you I cared
How much I wanted you
How much I wanted us
And even when it looked like you were attentive, I was abandoned
Performing for empty seats that couldn’t applaud
A swift glance into the crowd and you were gone.
Like you were never there.
I’ll reach out. AGAIN.
This time you’ll take my hand, like you’re here to stay
But it’ll be just a moment longer and you’ll be gone with the wind
As with our plans to be Romeo, and I your Juliet
You’ll once again flush down hopes of long night talks to take a chance on us,
And I’ll be left standing on foolish street,
Gazing into tech, as hopes of loving you dim into oblivion.
I’m done chasing you.
I’ll love to be yours and I thought you would too
But now I don’t care.
Because for everytime you ran from me you made space large enough to forget you
Large enough to melt away your existence as seeds of you planted, withered
So you can run , farther and farther away
For even though I know it’s fear holding you from taking this road with me
I also know it’s choice.
You chose over and over again to hold onto fear longer than to hold onto me
So you can run
But only this time.
This time, I’m not the coward
This time, you ran. I didn’t.
If trying scares you this much then I’ll rather walk solo in this love race
Walking happily till I find one willing to run with me and not away from me
Run! Run! Run!!
Leaving pure love unexplored.
That’s on you.
That’s all on you.
