Tell Him For Me

Since pride is my passion

As well as my downfall

I’ll never utter the words to him.

Tell him I gently laid my heart out

That night on the phone

Softly telling him what I felt

In hopes he would understand.

Tell him I waited for him to relent

Until I finally had to pick my heart up

Off the frozen ground

And turn away.

Tell him the part of me he could have had

Will forever be his.

Tell him

There is so much wrong with me

I wouldn’t know where to begin

Fixing.

Tell him I don’t know how

To reach out to him.

Tell him I have nothing to apologize for

With the exception of giving away feelings

To someone that had no idea

How to receive such a gift.

Tell him I’ll be sitting right here

And we will see

Which reaches me first.
