Never Be Mine

You’re who I constantly think about.
I can’t keep you out of my mind.
You’re the girl I’ll always love,
though you’ll never be mine.

I captured your heart for a moment,
but it was too good to be true.
It was something that wouldn’t last.
I should have realized it’d end so soon.

Maybe I’m not wealthy.
I know I’m not very funny.
I wish I was good-looking,
but some of us just aren’t that lucky.

When I dream of you at night,
reality is bent to my liking.
We’re together once again,
and there’s no reason for crying.

Then I wake up and it’s back
to the usual hollowness and pain.
Other people I easily got over,
yet I can’t forget your name.

I wasn’t able to prove how much I cared,
or at least you didn’t give me the time required to do so.
I should have seen that commitment wasn’t there

Skepticism has been weighing me down;
the load is too much to carry.

because it’s holding my future hostage.

You’re trying to save what’s left of my soul,
telling me the good news.
As if you’re going to rescue me from my fall
by tossing down a noose.

It’s already too late.
The damage has been done.
There’s nothing you can say
that will make me put away my gun.

I’m surrounded by impenetrable walls,
locked in a prison of my own design.
You have the best of intentions,
but it’s impossible to turn back time.

The eyes of a thousand strangers
are peering in from that glass ceiling.
They judge me for every wrong turn,
yet they don’t see their own failings.

I realized a long time ago
that the only way out is death.
That if I am to truly live,
I have to go on without breath.

So I’ll pull the trigger
while I still have a chance.
Before they take away my right
to play a part in this deadly romance.
