This Is About You

Tears flow
Down my cheeks
I don’t even try to stop them
Missed connections
Wrong time
Wrong place
Across the miles
My heart gazes
Longingly, foolishly, hopefully

Damn you, heart!
Come back to reality!
No matter how hard you wish
Nor how strong your longing:
What is, is
Pick up, move along
Turn aside
Don’t look back!
Hey! I said don’t look back!
You can’t go where you aren’t wanted

Are you even listening to me?
…Come back…please…
Don’t leave me here, Heart,
Alone with just my thoughts
…I need you
