And though I crave to know he loves me,
at the same time I'm afraid,
Knowing the words that I'll have to say,
because there is simply no other way.
We cannot be together
from the start, we knew that
yet we continued talking,
so much not to cross the line.
I tried hard not to fall for him,
faking deafness to his beautiful words,
striving for nonchalance,
yet succeeding at none.
Because just as I know we have no future,
I couldn't have stopped it before it was born,
the feeling of loving, and to be sure of that love.
And still I cannot change it,
even if the pain becomes too much.
Because that means that I've been happy
so much more than I had hoped.
Each moment I got to know him,
it only made me feel it more,
even though he is not perfect,
or what I was looking for.
Yet knowing him has shown me,
that maybe I was wrong,
that wanting and needing
are the same, yet they are not.
He's always making me happy
and he doesn't even try,
thoughts of him are playing
every second in my mind.
And still the answer is not changing,
a future we cannot have,
and it's not like we can reverse it
because when it comes to this,
there's just not going back.
