To Keep You in My Life

To Keep You in My Life

My hands want to hold you
but you do not want to feel
my touch and know my lips
do not only speak words

I try to find a real reason
you could be okay with
but I know I am only half the man
you expected to find

I do not make you sigh
when you dream

I cannot part the clouds
and spotlight you with sun
even when I tell you
that I can

you did not even look twice
when I told you
that I love you

I know you do not want
my full blown honesty
The words that spill
from my heart at night

Not the way you take a compliment
and strangle it

But I will not lie to you anymore
Tell you I am something
that I am not
just for you to find out
two months down the road
and walk out of my world forever anyway

I know I would have withdrawals
because when you leave it is taking insulin
from a diabetic hand

So I walk a tight rope
to keep you in my life
but I think it is beginning
to kill me

Because everyday I see you
I feel so weak
when the love that I feel
is this strong
