I Can’t Stay For Long by P0RG
Here we are again
As with every day
Together and yet so damnably far apart
God forbid one of us breaks the silence
This is routine, this is how it is
I wouldn’t dare shatter what we have for a chance
With a smile, I depart, escaping back to longing thoughts
Wanting was okay, wasn’t it? Allowed?
Never to be acted on lest I ruin what was here–
And with surprise, I do
This wasn’t the way things went
But today was different, a new day
A tongue darts, wetting chapped lips
Nervous, timid… afraid?
Finally, a whisper
As eyes determinedly delve into my soul
“Will you stay?”
A breath, shuddering in a tight throat
Mine, or theirs?
Such a simple question, considering
The answer would be life changing
Wanting was okay, but with this chance?
Presented like the last gift to ever be received
How could I possibly say no?
I turn back
Never able to deny them anything
And I stay
