That’ll be Enough

I just want to spend some time with you.
Go somewhere fun and get lost with you.
All of it just to be with you.
And at the end of the day,
If your heart’s with another.
I’m okay too,
We had moments only you and I shared.
And I know, nothing else could have compared.

Wishes Are Not For Realists

Dearest crush.
It’s funny how anything can make you blush.
It’s only been a few days,
But I already miss the way our eyes were lost in each other’s daily gaze.
I know my wishes,
Are merely hopeless glimpses of something that could never be.
I just can’t seem to stop you.
From always getting the best of me.

Piece of Reality

We don’t have enough time throughout the day.
I wish we could just say what we feel.
While I spend most of the day,
picking up every broken piece of me.
Hoping this wasn’t happening to me.
And you,
Never realizing what you’ve done to me.
