One More Day

on

I could get lost in the songs that I play.

Romantic thoughts playing over and over.

I have never stopped being hopeless when it comes to you.

I could watch the way your shoulders shake when you laugh.

I could watch you all day but now I am thinking it over.

I watch your forest green eyes whenever I can.

The way they light up when you smile

I should probably forget since you do not exist.

I could watch the way you stare off into space when lost in thought.

It just hurts to know I can never ask you what it is you are wondering.

I know I should not be hopeful for something not real.

I cannot ask you to belong to me if you are not there.

I cannot tell you my name if you are not a figure to others.

Your forest green eyes are not in this reality.

I am selfish to spend so much time with imaginary.

Only no one will know if I pretend for one more day.

    Yes, Greg, I’m so glad you could relate. There is one big goal as a writer when expressing emotions and that is to let others relate and know they aren’t alone. 💙
