If You Still Want Me

I try to escape

I listen and I wait so forlornly

I try to escape,

but this feeling has got me

I'll see this through

Who's gonna stop me

I still wanna be with you

If you still want me

Waiting for you to see the truth is so exhausting

I wanna wake up to you every morning

Tip toe my way to work,

and hope that you saw me

We let it go before,

and for that I'm so sorry

I can't take the anticipation of you calling

This still hurts

An ending without warning

I still wanna be with you

If you still want me

    So emotional and gorgeously resonant with the way you describe love and yearning for another person.

    The repetition of "I still wanna be with you, If you still want me" adds a sense of yearning and a plea for connection, the raw honesty and genuine emotions expressed in this poem make it relatable and resonant, thank you very much for sharing, love your works, hope to read more, subscribed.
