You are crushing my world,
My heart is being torn out –
But I can’t say a word,
I am forced to keep quiet.
Not allowed to ask questions,
With no permission to meet,
Inappropriate of me to complain,
Or challenge anything, God forbid.
Words that cannot be traced back to you –
You have never said.
Glances and smiles exchanged –
All made up in my head.
Those soft kisses on my cheeks –
I’d better forget –
I am imagining it all,
I am completely and utterly mad.
Walk off me whenever you want,
Cut my tongue out, if you must,
I am helpless to do anything,
With the subtlety built on trust.
