You're miles away one moment,
Unreachable, unapproachable, lost to me.
The next, you're right beside me,
Like that's where you really want to be.
You're there even before I realize
That you're everything I need.
I know you care for me deeply,
Yet you don't mind watching me bleed.
You know you don't need me,
Yet you never make a move to leave.
You're a bundle of contradictions -
Knowingly so, I sincerely believe.
You say kismet conspires endlessly
When she smiles, touches for mere seconds.
We spend hours together, laughing, talking,
It's not kismet, it's not a mere coincidence.
Our eyes met today, did you even notice?
A moment when no words were required.
I turned away first, hoping you wouldn't see,
My heart beating there, weary, hurt, tired.
