Up there

Aa Harvey

Up there.



You and I walk on different plains of existence.

You walk with the beautiful people, who can only pretend to fall in love;

Everything is just a pretense.

Whilst I am devoted to my one love only;

Only she can find me in the depths of despair, so lonely,

Gasping for air, drowning in my apathy,

Swimming against the currents of what could have been.



You dance the night away and then you are gone before the day breaks,

While I sleep here alone, on my back, with my arm out,

Waiting for my true mate;

My best friend, my girlfriend,

Not your one for this weekend.

I mean a lover who wants to be with me,

Again and again and again.



Your list is so long that only my belief can match it;

You are perfectly aware of all the faults I have to deal with

And you do not care, because you have beautiful hair

And all the attention you think you deserve, you get.

I am never going to go there,

Because you look down on me from your higher plateau;

You and I are not the same, for I am so far below.
