I don't know what I can do Other than sit here and stare at you She leans against your chair, You do nothing to fight back I want to die But instead, I'm paralyzed You do nothing to halt her advances Though you feel nothing the same for her I hate myself more and more As I can only sit here and stare at the floor.
I cannot move, I'm transfixed How would it look to see my name on those thirsting lips? Lovingly inflected, as though I'm the only one on your mind? Surely, I will never know It's only been a short while, we've barely begun And yet I find myself craving your touch more than I can show. Paralyzed, I cannot speak Instead, I internally weep and feel loss for the thing I have no right to grieve.
