Far Away Is Not Close Enough

-

Intolerable

Why can't somebody be who I'm looking for?

Unsayable

How can I tell her I love her?

Why should I expect

__to hear it form her?

My world will crumble up

__like a cream pie

And only piles only spaghetti

__will know where

____the sharp turns of

______this road to

________where ever the Hell

__________it goes

Is taking me

But I will flap my wings

And fly away

I won't know exactly what

__to say anymore

____these days

Maybe it's all turned to shit

Fumbled away

__and hitting me

____like a brick to the brain

I have no right

__to bother with questions

____even

I should wait for her

Not like I'm going anywhere

__with anybody else

I could just be shot

__right thru my heart

And I would still

__be too busy

____feeling the loss of her

That I wouldn't feel it

She is staining my heart

It's hard to get a good emotion

I should of never dreamed

__of love

Maybe I wouldn't want it

__so bad

But nothing else in life

Can satisfy me
