Maybe I’ll Never

lady_and_knight
Maybe I’ll never
have what you want,
my jokes will never
be enough,

I can move you
to laughter each day,
push the clouds aside
as the blue shines through
the grey
and you’ll love me
in a way
that I would never want
from you
but maybe I’ll never
have what you want,

I can give you everything,
the undying love
of someone who actually
enjoys listening,
even those little things
like gently escorting you
by the hand through crowds
and pulling out chairs
for you to sit down and
conversation about those
dead poets who secretly console
us in isolation
through the lonesome nights
we both partake in
on either side of
the abandoned train station
but maybe I’ll never
have what you want

and I’ll only ever dream of
winning you over
and cos I know
it’s a losing game,
I suffer in silence
and swallow the pain
and hide what I feel
when I hear your name,
just a tortured soul
wearing shining armour.
