I woke up with tears in my eyes and a horrific pain in my stomach
I had another dream about her
God she was beautiful
Every little detail about her was goddess-like
I never thought someone like her would want to be a friend to someone like me
I never thought I'd fall so hard for her
And now all I want is her
But I know I cannot have her
She made it clear when I first confessed
I would've have dropped to my knees and begged her
But I knew it would've had no effect on her
So I just nodded my head in silence
And accepted sadness's invitation
I could feel depression's chains close and lock onto my wrists
And felt them squeeze tighter
My voice vanished
As if someone had sucked it out of my throat
I had no other words
All of my emotions gathered in my mind along with my confused thoughts
How could she let me kiss her?
Why did she let me?
why? Why? WHY?
It screamed over and over in my head
Like a steady drumbeat
And my heart went up in flames
The tears forever burned into my flesh
And all that was left was the glowing embers
I could no longer pursue her
But her face
Her beautiful face
Will haunt my mind
And my dreams
And there can be no other cure for the burning
That is forever embedded in my soul
And in my heart
