Wishful Thinking - Poem by Saucy Elmo

It's been three days since I last held you.
Before you said the words that broke my heart in two.
All I feel is loneliness, cause nothing feels right,
And I'm wishing you'd see,
But you can already see everything!

We were beautiful.
Set up too high still.
To crash into a million pieces.
I want you to know.
I still feel the same, nothing has changed.
Promised myself I'd never write again.
Cause without you, all I'm feeling is pain.
And yet I still manage to get the words out,
On this sheet of paper, and I'm starting to doubt.

It's been forever since I held your hand.
You had your reasons, so I understand.
I keep begging because I think its working.
But you haven't come back.
Can't you see I need you?

I want you back.
This isn't an MJ track.
I know that you'll find someone better.
While I'll be the scarlet letter.
You made me feel more than I ever had before.
If I said I loved you one last time,
One day, can I call you mine?

We were beautiful.
Set up too high still
And even so, I'd still give you everything!
I want you to know,
I don't want to be on my own!
Every night I sleep in my hoodie.
Make believe its your arms around me.
Sometimes I cry, and I'll try to get some sleep tonight.
Sometimes I wish I could turn back time.
All the time I wish I could get back what once was mine.
