Distance brings confusion and thoughts of doubt.

By MICHELLE SMITHPublished 5 months ago 1 min read

When I said, "I love you", I meant this word

I thought you were or are my missing link

A soul mate I can grow old with

Once a good thought till you switched up and gone silent once more

What did I do to chase you away?

Maybe too clingy, too needy for you

You've become distant and all I can think, "What went wrong?"

I love you isn't a word to throw around

Opened up to you thinking we're on the same page

This moment feelings foolish and alone

Keep on thinking, "What have I done?"

Your being distant and kind of cold

You've distance yourself once more

Does it feel like I'm rushing this?

Praying to God up above

Wondering if you still like me

You say you're always busy, how will you have time for me?

Do I have a place in your life?

Or am I just taking up space on this shelf?

Distant is how you are, you seeing it too?

Should I just chalk it up to a dream never to come true

Is all this in my mind?

Whichever it is your distant once more...
