You'Ll Never... - Poem by Lindsay King

You'll never look at me the way I want you to
Maybe it's only a drunken night;
Or a thought lodged in the back of my head
The secretive messages I wish were from you
We both want the same damn thing
Which is why this would never happen
But sometimes I think that intuition can be wrong
And you're artsy, not shady
And I can laugh at all those dumb girls
That are parading around you like a gift from God
Because they don't see the truth
That I do
We both want the same damn thing
Which is why this would never happen
Only now I am saying this
Because once I sleep it off,
These thoughts
Will return to the back of my mind
And you'll go back to
Basking in the shadows of your secrecy
