EACH DAY GOES BY


Late, I have not been sleeping
Can you guess?
I don't want you to be leaving
Do I need to be grieving?

About love and all it's trials
When you keep going home to Marie
I just want the smiles
Of love, not the misery

You give me both of them
More pain than sunshine
I wonder if you are him
The man to make me kind

How can I be that way
When you're not telling me I'm beautiful
Then "I love you" you don't say
While I am here, trying to be yours and dutiful

I clean my house so much better
To have a pleasant place to write poetry
As I think, I cannot even send you a letter
Because I wonder if you're not really free

As you back away without my passion
All week I won't say I care
As I put on makeup and wear fashion
As I run away from the love there

Because I question every moment of it
Every time you turn me down
And I've really grown to love it
So this punishment must come 'round

Punish you by not being at home
Leave a note I've gone away
Don't answer your calls, forget my phone
Then will you realize you miss me and say

How you feel when I'm trembling there below
Are you too shy with me to say the word
If I'm really someone you want to know
Your praises for me need to be heard

Will your learn women die without your voice
Will you burn as my mouth is close on you
Will you understand your love was my choice
My heart caught on fire when you told me to be true

So far that's all you've said
It seems you tried to say "I love you" on the phone
You can say it with your body in our bed
I can feel it late at night as I stay up alone

It's probably better to hold back with me
As I seem to worship what I don't know
You've clarified I am not free
I'm yours, as I say I love you and go

In a dream, I live for your "I love yous"
In this reality, "I love yous" in your touch
In a moment, I knew I'd be true
As two years ago, my tiny love has grown up so much.
