I talk to you but you don’t listen,
You hear the words and don’t understand.
I lie to you and suddenly you miss me,
You love me and need me, and I just pretend.
I know the feeling of sadness and loss,
The more you chase me the faster I run.
It’s not just a lie but a betrayal of trust.
You’ve changed the rules, it was supposed to be fun.
And here we are staring at each other,
Wondering what thoughts are crossing our minds…
If it’s not love then why should we bother…
If this is friendship….a way we shall find.
