post breakup thoughts in bed

It's not that I don't want you

It's that that I can hear the rise and fall of your voice through the words you write me

And there's an ache in my chest because I already left

The one thing that could soothe my demons so dark

That tear my apart but you're there to calm the storm

And hold me together in arms wrapped around me

Keeping me safe until I see the sun.

It's not that I don't want you

It's that I can feel the pain through the light from my screen

As you try to be brave and say you're okay

Even though I know I'm the one who put the hole in your heart

Where my love used to be to keep it sewn shut and kept safe

From the monsters you had always kept at bay by yourself

Until you met me.

It's not that I don't want you

It's that when I hear c'est la vie in a song on the radio

I can see your lips forming into that smirk

You make with a spark in your eyes as you hold my hand and shrug

Because life isn't fair

And I know that for once I made you believe that maybe there's better

For everyone and that your past did not define you.

It's not that I don't want you

It's that the silence kills me now that I'm noting your absence

When I'm laying in bed in the dark of the night

Alone with my thoughts but no longer your words

As you made sure it was safe for me to sleep.

It's not that I don't want you.

It's that you're no longer mine to have
