An Apology

We are not where you think you are

We are not where I led you to believe

I know I covered your eyes,

I know I whispered into your ear

to trust me

but I lied

Forgive me?

Can't we just be friends?

Can't you just accept your part in it?

You walked with me.

I'm sorry.

Why can't we just be friends?

Why can't I just drink up your light?

Can't you just accept your part in it?

I'm sorry.

Forgive me?

Why can't you sit here close to me?

We are not where you think you are

We are not where I led you to believe

I know I covered your eyes,

I know I whispered into your ear

to trust me

but I lied

Forgive me?

Can't we just be friends?

Can't you just accept your part in it?

You walked with me.

I'm sorry.

Why can't we just be friends?

Why can't I just drink up your light?

Can't you just accept your part in it?

I'm sorry.

Forgive me?
