When I think of you, I can’t help but think about what could have been.
Had things gone differently- the way they did in my mind- where would we be?
If things had gone differently, would we have
Morphed into our own version of perfect?
Would we be the people I still see inside my mind?
We had a chance to jump in together,
But only one of us was willing to take the leap.
Maybe I misread the signs and maybe
I was a fool for thinking we could be something, but maybe
We will forever be in state of missed opportunity.
There are times when I find myself lost
In the world of what could have been.
Where we are in a place where the universe is shaped around us-
Where we discover happiness together.
In my mind, we find peace in each other’s arms
And share secret smiles in the moments we steal.
But then reality sets in, and I remember who we really are.
I sneak glances at you, but you never look at me.
I rehearse what to say inside my head,
But the words never pass my lips.
I pretend it doesn’t hurt as we remain
Trapped dancing around each other
In this hollow state.
