This poem was written a year ago and it is about the frustration associated with pursuing someone that is never sure about how he or she feels about you.
Why is it that you can
Never seem to let me go?
You don’t want me but you do
You take me high then push me low
All I ask for is stability
But what you want is a chase.
You want to build up the tower
And let me worry about the base.
You run after me till I slow down
Shedding mercy on your frame
But when I stop, then you leave
To you, it’s nothing but a game.
Why are we spinning in circles
Like a whimsical carousel?
Are the lies too exciting?
Is the truth so hard to tell?
You’re getting me worked up
About something that won’t be
And I try so hard to make you happy
When you’re trying to ruin me.
Can you go and not come back?
Not boomerang or ricochet?
Because when we cut off in April
You’re hitting me up again in May.
Either you want me every moment
Or you’re done forevermore
Either sit down on the sofa
Or leave through the door.
Don’t do this thing where no one knows
Where I’m forever on the edge,
First you squish us close together,
Then between us you drive a wedge.
Maybe it’s just me but this seesaw
Cannot keep swinging like it did
We’re grown up now, we can’t
Keep acting like we’re little kids.
So make up your mind and make a choice
Otherwise let me decide
Cause I’ve gotten over you once,
I think I can do it again if I tried.
The chase has gone on for far too long
The high is not worth the pain
If I keep running towards and away from you
I might just go insane.
