Kiss You Goodbye

Doll in Wonderland

No good in relationships, 

I only understand the feeling of leaving

And knowing I'm not going to see you again

No matter how many times

You told me otherwise, held my hands, and kissed me

I only know, all too well, 

That jack hammer heart sensation

All excited about a future

With we and us, instead of I and me

Only to have that spark never ignite into flame

My heart was what you warmed your hands in

Feeling that fire that resides in me

I didn't see yours was out, ages ago

Take what you need

I only comprehend 

Where this was going, in circles, or worse, standing still

After I've mapped out your skin, 

And travelled the miles

Intimately knowing the expanse of your land

Weary from travelling, 

Not knowing I will always just be a tourist, to you

And you never knew

That crossing my territory, you walked on my heart

That expansive ocean, lying beneath the surface

I'm going to kiss you goodbye

Even if you say it's not, I know better

I hope you find whatever it is you're looking for.
