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.

The Sun has to Rise

I’ve got a lot to say.
I’ve got a lot to see.
I’ve got a lot to do.
Now it’s just up to me,
To see it all through.
Completely flip this mentality that’s been drowning me deep.
And I know it’s possible.
I’ve been there before.

Art of Unrequited Love 

I’m nine hundred and fifty miles away.
Without any delay,
The thought of you has also traveled straight my way.
And they say,
Time helps the heart forget.
Yet we shared nothing that makes me ache.
Only my hope of being the one you yearn for.

Seat Belts and Caviar

I’m getting in my car.
Steering this heart straight towards yours.
Taking the second exit would be the fastest route to you.
Street lights and signs guide me to you.
Finding my way through all these roads with all my hopes.
Getting to you is all I really need to do.
And what’s after that,
is solely up to me and you.
