Blinded Yellow

I'm covered in guilt every time I read your love for me.

It's like I'm standing in-between you and him

there's me

The yellow line in the road separating you two

I'm yellow because I'm a coward

My world split in two

The world I've created in fiction became my truth

If only I knew....

And while you say your truth, he pulls at my cord

The universe reminds me of his existence

I still try to deny it

And then the pain travels from it

I feel ashamed that I try

But fear seems to still reign deep down inside me

And I deny your feelings you write me

I think they blind you to my talent

You see more than what I have

You're my only audience

And I think your raven has blinded you to your feelings

You may think you love me

Maybe I led you to where you are

and for that I'm sorry

I can be flirty without knowing

but it has cost me a friend who I need

and miss sharing with my stories

and texting just because...

I miss your laugh

You have a really sweet voice

You don't sound like an Edward though you may feel like one

Your heart's too big to carry

You deserve a world of British guys to serve you tea by the sea

You and your British guys I never understood

I miss you too

No one understands my love for writing like you do

But I miss him, can't you tell

He's like tossing a nickel in the well

A wish....

You write about us under sheets... I'm shocked of the things you say about me...

You were just my friend

You held it in so well

Am I that blind?

    Beautifully written! The part about being an β€˜Edward’ made me giggle, as if you were letting me in on a inside joke.

  • Shery Fathy2 months ago

    Very beautiful and emotional. Reminded me of someone that I used to know, yet I had to end things because I made him fall for me while I felt nothing. It's sad, and I regret a lot of my actions, but by far the biggest one is that I didn't leave early before it got too complicated for both of us.
