What Am I To Do?

Conflicted Heart

By Mercedes ChavezPublished about a month ago 1 min read
Artist Unknown

I go back and forth in my mind

Am I wasting my time?

Do I actually mean anything to you?

The way you look at me, confuses me

The way you touch me, confuses me

Because they seem to confirm what I think

But the words you speak in front of others...

Maybe you want to keep things private

Or maybe I really am just that

Nothing but a friend

Nothing more, nothing less

Just someone you can turn to when there is no one else

A last resort, if you will

Someone who makes you feel good

Someone who takes away the darkness

Someone who silences the chaos inside

A stand in until you find the one you actually want

Maybe I'm just overthinking

Or maybe I'm not

You might just be waiting for me to get a clue

Or maybe there is some unspoken thing there

What am I to do?
