Lonely heart

by Maheshwar Jha (18)

I can’t get you out of my head
No matter how hard I try.
I still love you
Even when you make me cry.
I want you in my arms
I want you to be mine
But you don’t want me now
You say it’s not our time.
I hate the fact that I love you
And that I can’t get you out of my mind.
I hate that every time I think of you
My heart flutters and my eyes cry.
I’d rather cry and mope
Than call you to get things straight
Because somewhere in my heart
I know it’s already too late…
