If I could open up, what would I say?

Darkness and discontent veil once kind eyes

finding their way to mine while my heart sinks

troubles I had hoped I would leave behind

my distant lover right in front of me.

Have I lost you to another person?

Are our problems just excuses to leave?

Is this just another thing I’ve ruined?

I understand, must be hard to love me.

Patience quickly turns to irritation

once made a promise I’d communicate

I can sense your increasing frustration

does it really matter what I might say?

My anxious mind causes this game each day

diurnal staring contests stuck on replay.
