“I don’t know about us,” I say.
My voice shaking
Forever is as long as I want to sit beside you
But you’ve given too many mixed messages
I mean everything to you and I mean nothing
You mean everything to me, but so does my heart
“Look at me,” you say.
Your voice insistent
I manage a brief glance before turning away
You’re looking too deeply into my eyes
Straight through my soul, straight to my heart
Places I don’t want your eyes to see
“I love you,” you say.
Your voice pleading
You sound like you believe what you’re saying
But along with the candles reflecting off your eyes
I see that spark of fear and I understand
You’re not comfortable with those three words
“I love you too,” I say.
My voice silent
