When your mascara is running down your face,
Weaving his name around your heart like an intricate lace,
You’d smile, even through the tears
Because he was the only one who ever calmed your fears.
And then you'd sit in your window trying to rhyme
finding any excuse to not get him off of your mind
And post cryptic lyrics on your instagram stories
Hoping he’ll realise and take a hint.
But then, you’ll make do with the photo on your phone
The one you couldn't find the courage to delete,
Because you knew, you can't get over someone like him
Someone who lit your soul on fire and made you warm from within.
