Don'T Think It's You

I know you love me... you've often told me so
but deep in my heart...I feel I have to go
my feelings for you... are less than you need
this marriage you want...surely will not succeed
but don't hate me please...I just gotta be sure
when I say 'I do'...I need emotions to stir
this is just me...and what I say is true
so when you read this poem....don't think it's you.

You've treated me well...you really have tried
to make me feel special...to touch me inside
what you feel...I don't...that's so not your fault
maybe I looked too hard...for a reason to halt
this thing that we have...is all you desire
I feel warm inside...but I wait for the fire
my attachment has waned...while your feelings accrue
don't blame yourself and...don't think it's you.

So if this is goodbye....if this is how it ends
excuse the cliché...we can still be just friends
will that work for you? ...will that be alright?
let's part amicably...and not have a fight
there's nobody else...just feelings are missing
I'll look back someday...and enjoy reminiscing
I'll go on and look...for this picture I drew
I may never find it...but I don't think it's you.
