Well, I know you think that you’re in love,
Merely due to your unfamiliarity
With all the craziness that comes along
With catching my fancy.
Well, the stone walls of my fortress, dear,
Are vastly higher than those of your perception.
Well, to see me at all, dear, you too, must grow tall,
And try discerning my cryptic directions.
My distance may offend you,
But trust, dear, the warmth in my eye.
If you catch a glimpse of affection from me,
Someday you might find you’ll miss me.
Well, my fingertips that dance & grip
will distract you momentarily.
But, don’t expect me to cuddle back with
Our minds so completely off track.
Well, having no clue as I signal you,
You rip pages from my open book
To slander me on some dirty stall wall,
Fabrications of your lovely hooves.
Well, I’d like to think we’d somehow syncopate,
Our odd rhythms complementing the other.
But, instead we’ve burnt the bread, and
Our dough fell before it was rising.
Well, time will not erase your case,
Broken hearts hold no statute of limiations.
Well, I’m sentenced to life delving in the strife
Of only knowing your touch so briefly.
