Between the I do's and til death do us part
After all these years, the distance between us is so great,
and I am finally ready to let go and stand alone,
I say, it is time, I must go.
and you, "don't go, my only love"
With all your love and might, you fight to keep me,
And finally exhausted, I, betray my heart and stay.
we try to close the distance between
with a day of naughty, laughter and pleasure,
but the fight for freedom has extracted a price,
and the pain lives in your eyes.
Your words a mirror in my soul
"if you love another….
I would understand your leaving."
I lie to you, and say
no, there is no other,
"well even if I am just not Mr. Right to you, anymore
and your heart searches for him, then you must go"
again I lie, how can I break your heart,
my childhood sweetheart,
and say, there is another,
and I have given to him what was not mine to give?
What words would I use to explain to you
that he did nothing to deserve the love
you need so desperately from me,
and that I freely gave
all that is me?
How could I say that his love,
the love I have searched in so many eyes for,
made my heart complete?
How can I say that his love can never be,
that this man who completed me, walked away
with my heart and my soul, and is no longer,
but yet remains?
I give you a kiss and tell you thanks
For such a nice day.
I melt the marshmallows,
You absentmindedly while talking on the phone,
Take the spoon from me
And I watch you, still with me through it all,
stir in the Rice Krispies...
