It feels different,
And yet a familiarity engulfs me.
I know this isn’t right,
But what else could it be?
There is a laugh lingering,
And I can’t help but notice,
How everything is in line,
How there may be a motive.
All the distances covered,
As we ran faster than the wind.
Towards something that’s a goodbye,
But yet a mistake we wanted and did.
It wasn’t like this before,
And nothing ever is that way,
But I know you are a risk worth taking,
Every minute every day.
There are words we know stay aloof,
Never said or ever reached out for.
But the silence we stay in smiles,
That they are to be said no more.
It isn’t much and not so big,
And yet I fall so hard,
With your words and demeanour,
I hope it stays and goes so far.
Emotions hide inside of me,
And never find way to the tongue,
So here I am telling you,
That it is you who I love.
All the differences that keep us apart,
Kill me and extinguish every flame,
But there is something about you,
That I cannot stop playing this game.
So I will continue to run beside you,
Trying to catch up to your pace,
It will leave me sore so much,
At least I could fill the space.
No matter what the disparity maybe,
Whatever it is you are trying to manage,
I will stay by your side,
And help you fix whatsoever may be the damage.
Are you ready to run to the goodbye,
That neither of us look want to go towards?
But it is a goodbye we need,
As we balance ourselves on the tip of swords.
