Fueling The Fire - Poem by Jessica Carlson

While my heart is so cold,
you make me want to live and feel again.
When I'm laying next to you,
there's a feeling I can't dismiss,
a feeling like we were meant for this.
I don't want to stay so casual,
so even though you don't want a girlfriend,
I want to be there when you come home
and you're fed up with shit from work.
I'll make sure you forget about it
and join your heart with me.

This accord is the time working against us.
But are we really an us?
You told me that if I was with
another guy you would be jealous,
you have no idea how good that
felt to me.
How are you making it so that you
can melt the ice on my protected heart?
You told me that love does exist if
they are both in love,
you have no idea how I wish I could believe that.
And how I wish it could be us two.

This is the misery of me.
