What We Need



You aren’t where you should be now


You’re somewhere else instead


Even though your body’s here


You’re somewhere in your head



I wish for once you would talk to me


And tell me how you feel


I wish you would stop to see


That you’re lying makes me weary



You love me more than words can say


And this I know is true


But how you ask me to stay


Is simply quite confusing



The love I feel inside for you


I simply cannot change


But something that I cannot do


Is feel trapped inside a cage



I cannot smile anymore


While I sit and wait


To act as an imposter


Is something that I hate



I cannot sit and wait for things


To simply just get better


I want to take some action now


That’s why I wrote this letter



Time is what we need my love


For us to heal and grow


Time for us to face our fears


Only then we’ll know


If what we have is real
