My feelings for you swing back and forth like a child on a swing set
Up – the joyful glee of soaring through the air
Pure happiness in the moment with you
Down – the uncertainty and the power of free-fall
Doubts racing past my eyes
The intensity scares me.
Will we go up again or will we tumble off the swing,
crashing to the mulch below,
leaving scars on our scratched-up knees like old
Sun sets on another day
and I wonder if I’m wasting my life away.
what’s the reason to wake up
on the days there’s nothing to do?
I don’t want to wake up
because I’ll think of you.
will I ever be
what I wish to see
in the mirror looking back at
I wasn’t sure you’d understand
but you sure try as hard as you can.
You sift through my gaze,
making your way through the maze.
Without a map,
you search for your treasure
filling the space between us, this gap
with all your love – far beyond measure.
I know that look in your eyes.
You’re waiting for me to say I’ll stay.
I’ll give up all my crazy dreams and fantasies to be here with you.
Safe in your arms.
But honey the safe world is not meant for me,
I’d much rather jump out of this plane
sans parachute this time.
