"It's not having what you want, it's wanting what you've got" - Soak Up the Sun; Sheryl Crow

Do not come begging at my feet
My expectations you do not meet
Have you any idea how you are?
You hammered into my chest
Shattering everything inside
Nothing but an eternal sting
Pieces gone forever

Cannot allow you in once more
I must shut this revolving door
You soft soothing tone suffocates me
As I try to escape from your rollercoaster
Needing to get off but refusing to let go
Your warm touch throws shivers down my spine
Keeping me safe

I turn around
You are gone
Like a flame vanished in the wind
Never fully there
You never embraced me
You never cared how I feel
You are not with me
Was it real?

Walking down the never-ending hall
People’s voices like flies buzzing in my ears
They know I love you
They know you do not care
Embarrassed to love you
Cannot show my face
You continue to ignore
Do not see my disgrace

Put out the bait
Reel me in
Allowing you to take me on another spin
Hoping shortly you will love me enough to stay
But my compassion and love
Only entertains for a day
Always been waiting patiently
But now strings like your marionette can no longer pull me
Now I see you in a bleak light
Feel no shivers, not in the slight
I look at you in front of me
Begging for forgiveness on your knees
I giggle to myself as I walk away
You do not deserve me for more than a day
