You know, yes you do know,
I want to speak to you;
Instead I hold my tongue
Between my teeth.
I want to run to you,
Push your shoulders
Back against the wall,
Nose to nose,
Get in your face.
I want to scream at you,
Yell at you, what the hell
Do you think you are doing,
Where do you think you are going,
Who do you think that you are
Leaving me silent like this,
I want to kiss you,
Pull you into my arms,
Stop it. Stop it.
You said you couldn't
Go through this again
Well neither can I.
But I can't even pick up the phone,
Ask you to stay,
I can't go to your place,
I can't put my heart in your way.
You have to do this for you,
Not for me,
You have to find what you need
And be sure of it.
Stand for it.
Stand by it.
Embrace it and never deny it;
That's what I want from you.

My bones ache for your presence,

But my soul aches for your truth.

Love the powerful voice used here! Well done. Definitely can relate to this and wish I had that bravery to say these things.
