I do not want to obsess over you
My mind keeps wondering
but I don’t want it to
I don’t like that pondering.
I should not want to want you
But one look and I am lost
I forget how to speak, what to do,
I forget the actual cost
The cost of my thoughts fading away
Turning into longing for this thing
You the hunter, I am your prey,
Dear brain, it’s just a fling.
I do not wish for this wanting anymore,
Wanting something you can’t give
But here we are, on the floor,
My body happy, my brain combative.
It’s always been push and pull,
A constant battle of attention,
Me ending up the fool
Mistaking things for affection.
You are so sweet, yet so strange
So outspoken and yet so quiet
This is where I derange,
Cause I can’t seem to keep it light.
Next time, please do not look at me,
With your dark eyes, luring me in,
When our eyes meet I can’t see,
That it’s you kicking me in the shin.
Stay away from me with your hand,
Please don’t make me feel your touch,
Cause it will spark me right back to no mans land,
And I am going to want too much.
