Mirages / repost

Mirages / repost

Oh, I suppose I knew right from the start
Not to toy with my own or someone else’s heart
And toying with hearts is not something I do
But you branded me early, not much I could do

And I spent all my spare time with you every day
And you helped me with problems and issues, okay?
But like doctor and patient this crush and crush grew
‘Kept getting the feeling that you liked me too

You never denied that you cared for my attentions
But you made it known quickly you had no set intention
To involve yourself with anyone at all
And all the while I was well into my fall

I kept dreaming and pushing for something to gel
You kept telling me you do not respond to that well
I thought I was taking a natural progression
And wasn’t consciously combating your natural aggression

Toward fighting the chance to grab the brass ring
But what “that” is in our minds are two different things
I imagine I knew right from the start
It’ll lead nowhere – if we at least don’t show heart

I tried to show mine and dreamt how we’d go
Into the future, together and our lives would just flow
How deluded in hindsight it seems that I was
To force commitment from friends is not what one does

I’m sorry I misread every single one of your clues
I’m paying for my behavior now; I still get the blues
And here I am still thinking after all this time
If I wait long enough that someday you’ll be mine

I guess I really did know this right from the first
Never crawl toward mirages when you’re dying of thirst
But mirages aren’t mirages until you get there
And find what you thought real - really wasn’t there
