An Almost Love Story
The moment my eyes hold a grip of you it was all rainbows and sunshine; Floras and butterflies, I’m floating on cloud nine Then you looked at me, Walking slowly towards me, don't know if you need something or just passing; That time I didn't cared All I can think about is how you had me ensnared That time, I know, I am sure you're the one; You’re the grace and beauty of the swan, The one I never prepared myself for A euphoric accident and now I ask for more Made a move, several times actually, The likes, the hearts, the wows, Thought I’m doing it impeccably; I actually followed you on every social medias Because I want to treasure your memorabilia’s Figured we have so much in common; Talks, cameras, pen and papers We're like a star crossed lover, stapled together That moment the search is finally over So I waited. I wait, and wait and wait Guess waiting is my state And now the rain continues to spate My feet grew its roots and now taking its routes Oh! The things I’ve done, hoping we can go cahoots I made myself your shadow; Followed you wherever you are You’re the smoker and I was your tobacco But I guess I really am was your shadow; Taken for granted, If only I foreshadowed I figured I'm like every person you passed by Someone you just met for a second, then say goodbye Thought we had a spark; Thought we could chat and drink in the park But I guess, I had to leave it now in the dark And now I'm writing this to you, Despite the words and sweet affirmations unspoken I will let it rest here, my heart’s broken. Maybe one day, you realize I am the one Lakes, rivers and oceans, for you I could swam The one who'll take care of you The one who'll be there, ready to rescue Until then, I'm here waiting.... Waiting for you. But if one day, someone new comes along always remember.... It's your fault that you didn’t hop along.
