Wanting

I wanted to
ask you
how you were,
but you looked away.

I wanted to
tell you
how I feel,
but you talked to someone else.

I wanted to
hold your
hand in mine,
but it was too far away.

I wanted to say
things to you,
I never knew what,
but I’m sorry for what I said.

I wanted you.

I only wanted you.

The Grind

I tried to love you.
I tried to be above you,
when you were down.
I tried to be below you,
when you wore my crown.

You wore me down,
you’ll never know
how much you
wore me down.
