Middle of the Night (2004)

I left you in

The middle of the night

And I’ll do it again

I left your arms

But you’re not mine

To even begin with

It doesn’t matter what I think or feel

To you I’m not real

A body to warm you when the nights get cold

I’m not the one that you really want to hold

Wanting alone isn’t enough

For that’s all there is between us

 

This constant tug of war is wearing on me

And yet here I am where you want me to be

How I want so much to just walk away

And yet here I am, I continue to stay

Oh god I’m so tired of feeling empty inside

It’s getting harder and harder to hide

This void I feel just won’t subside

 

And sometimes how I wish

That we could have more

But somehow I know that this

Is all you want me here for

No promises and no demands

Were ever made

But sometimes I still long

To take your hand

Before the moment fades

I know I’m only a passing thought in your mind

Until you reach for me

For the pleasure we’ll both undeniably find

 

This constant tug of war is wearing on me

And yet here I am where you want me to be

How I want so much to just walk away

And yet here I am, I continue to stay

Oh god I’m so tired of feeling empty inside

It’s getting harder and harder to hide

This void I feel just won’t subside

 

I can easily laugh it off and say

That I just don’t care

It’s not as if we have something or anything

Other than this thing between us that we share

Other than that momentary passionate stare

That moment of lust is fleeting

It’s nothing more than that meeting

 

This constant tug of war is wearing on me

And yet here I am where you want me to be

How I want so much to just walk away

And yet here I am, I continue to stay

Oh god I’m so tired of feeling empty inside

It’s getting harder and harder to hide

This void I feel just won’t subside

 

Oh god I’m so tired of feeling empty inside

It’s getting so hard so hard to hide

This void I feel…it just won’t subside

WOW! What a poem! Was this a song too? The frustration and confusion leaped off the page. It is so wrong to have to feel like this and to want what does not totally want all of you. I have felt that empty, unfulfilled void as well and it is not nice. Well done poem!
