I suppose

Yes, I suppose I’m quite naive.

But what could I do?

No, you never lied.

It was never your fault.

Yes, I tried to shield my heart,

but with each word you got more inside.

No, you never deceived me.

You never needed to.

Yes, I wanted too much.

More than we had.

No, I never thought I had a chance.

I just dreamed of our mornings.

Yes, I am quite foolish.

I wanted my lips to touch you as you touched my heart.

No, I don’t want to share this with you.

I could never survive you laughing at me.
