Addiction

Our relationship has never been the healthiest

We drive each other crazy

And have even crossed a line

There’s no respect

No love

Yet we are still here

“Leave him,” is what I hear

But how can I?

If every time I do try

You reel me back in

We are connected by a red threat

And even though it’s not healthy

And even though I shouldn’t say this

I can’t let you go

Because you are

You will always be

My addiction

Captivated By You

These feelings I cherish

These memories I keep

They all have something in common

They all revolve around you

You have never been one of many words

And I haven’t had a problem with that

In fact, they’ve had the opposite affect on me

I cherish them

They are who you are

While some find them odd

And others find it distasteful

I embrace them

In a way—

When our eyes meet

When I am the only who understands

It feels as if the ocean speaks to me

The ocean petrifies me

Yet you know that

But as long as you are by my side

The waves will be nothing but soothing and gentle

I will forever cherish these feelings

These memories I will treasure

So for now

While we still can

Let me be by your side

Because just like the ocean

The future is unpredictable

To Wait

Good things happen to those who wait

But I never truly believed this

The world is just so much crueler than this

Give me a reason to wait

To believe in such a thing

Yet here I am today–waiting

Waiting for you to acknowledge me

I now have a reason

So do me a favor

Look my way and smile

‘Cause I am willing to wait for you

 

 

A Sweet Melody

It’s soothing

Every time I listen to it

The sweet melody that comes out of the music box

And even when I close my eyes

I can still see it

The day you gave it to me

A present you said

And I know it wasn’t for my birthday

But I couldn’t ask

You wouldn’t tell me

Until today I don’t know the reason

Yet I’m okay with that

Because while I have this

While this memory lingers

I can still hold on to you
