Regret

Regret

I miss you.
But feel like I shouldn't say
Afraid of rejection and being lost
Trying to hold on loosely to what little I've got
Scared to voice an emotion, scared to let the feelings leak
Where did the love go? 2 hearts enter, 1 heart leaves
over dramatic sometimes, passive at others
always the same desire, to be once more lovers
so scared to say this aloud and to be discontent
you're happy, that's what I wanted, shouldn't my wounds be mendt?
I say I want you to be happy, I tried to let go
to support you from afar, to disappear, alone
old habits fought back, talking is what I want,
trying to communicate but feeling distraught
can't seem to shake it, this feeling of lost
my head says mistake, your smile says not
Yet I can't stop thinking about what's been dropped
At odds with myself because it's really two things I want
for you to be happy, but for me to be part
I should be content, happy that you're so free
yet selfishly I want you back, smiling at me
while I wishfully think of things that'll never be
