The Longing

Four weeks and we barely have spoken
One month now since we’ve been apart
My love, was I merely a token
How could you play with my heart


Was it so wrong
To feel the longing
We don’t belong
But I will go on

I gave you it all on a platter
So sure I was safe in your arms
You act as if it didn’t matter
Why would you wish me such harm

One day we will pass as if strangers
This pain will have faded away
I’ve learned that with love there is danger
That is the price we must pay
