As the clock goes tick tock,
I lie awake in bed
Thinking of you.
Struggling to remember
the contours of your face,
the tension in your arms,
around my waist.
Time erases my memory of you.
And while distance
I betray you.
Because there is someone else buried in my heart.
Like a guest that won’t leave
The distance between us is intentional
Because he will break my heart, but you won’t
Still, whoever said, “Outta sight, outta mind”
Definitely wasn’t talking about me.
Both men out of my sight, yet on my mind
Unable to return your love while my thoughts of him haunt me
There’s nothing sadder than a soul confused
But I’m looking for someone who will cherish, and not misuse
My love, my heart, my body, my soul
Someone on my mind, but another buried in my heart
Who do I choose?
