Listening to Mary J. on the radio Crying my eyes out because I don’t want to let go. It hurts so bad. I want you by my side. I need someone honest who I can call “mine.” Take me as I am or have nothing at all. You know all the rules and yet you still stand tall. Why’d your perfect self have to come my way? Got me here bawling not knowing what else to say. Because no matter what I say, I can’t close the gap. I feel like a mouse stuck between a wall and a trap. All I’ve got is these words holding me together. Keep wondering if this pain is gonna last forever.
