i couldn't

I couldn’t


I could drown in a sea of love for you,
I could kiss you and have the whole world crash down.
My heart could pound at the beat of our deep breaths we take when were close together.
I could get lost in your dark brown eyes….
But I just can’t love you like that.
See…
I’ve already drowned in a sea of love and haven’t arose from the depths to take in air,
My whole world has already fallen beneath my feet from a past lover's kiss.
My heart can’t pound at the beat of our breaths because someone else has already taken my breath away too many times.
I can’t get lost in your eyes because I’m lost in his and I can’t seem to find my way out.
I’m already used.
I’ve already given my heart away…
I would give it to you if I had it and let it go and into your hands it would soar,
But if you want to know the truth, I can’t help it but I’ll always love him…
What’s mine will never be yours.
