I love you

Stars twinkling in the distance,
You said it was romantic and cried.
I kept walking without looking
Back and you called my name.
Stars died that night and so did you.

Cigarette smoke curling away,
You said it was dirty and laughed.
I looked at you and made for
The open door to get away.
Smoke stained our vision of love.

Pink kisses flushing bright,
You said it was bliss and sighed.
I covered them and fled from
Everything to hide my heart.
Salt kisses fell from your eyes.

Blue sky stretches past me,
You said it was too frightening.
I realized it was only a dream
That I had sketched in loneliness.
Blue pages ripped from my dreams.

Lights flooding in the ground,
You watched from the other side.
I climbed onto the train and
Went to the window to kiss you.
Dull lights distort all of your features.

Red flowers blooming everywhere,
You floated away without noticing.
I whispered 'I hate you' through
Glass and you became a blurry image.
Red train lights blinking in the distance.

Colors rising and falling fast,
You are nothing more than a memory.
I look at the faint trace of my lips
On the window and wipe it away.
All that remains of you dying fast.

Stars twinkling in the distance,
I said it was romantic and cried.
I kept walking without looking
Back and no one called my name.
Stars died that night and so did I.


Can you understand me when I say I'm selfish? Do you understand when I say I did such a thing so that the "feeling of love" would remain? So I would not come to hate you... I did such a selfish thing because I love you.
