I stopped working for your recognition
stopped ordering your gaze to see
It’s better that way, for you… for me
It’s simpler, easier, and more stress free
then, she returns, that girl so perfect
always in your sight
she makes you laugh and keeps you smiling through the night.
You say she means no more than a friend
When I try to ask cautiously, when I pretend
Pretend I don’t care how others make you feel
When I want to be the only person you believe is real
Jealousy is so quickly poured over my soul
My feelings for you take an angry hold
Upsetting the balance I’ve tried to create
I can not calm the surface, it is already too late
All I can do is sit, hope and wait.
Soon anger and sadness will subside
For some time my heart will be alright
Equality will return to me, my heart, my soul, my mind.
