Awake at 2 AM
Countless times I've tried
To force you down to the deepest depths of my mind
But each time, you come right back up.
No matter how many times I've denied it
The thought of you still
Makes my heart flutter.
Your dancing eyes, the scent of your cologne
—I've got to get you off my mind.
Your voice, the soft, reassuring touch of your hand
—I must get you out of my mind.
The memories, laughter
—No, I need to get you out of my heart,
Shove you out the door
Slam it lock it tight
And melt the key
So it won't go on poking
The sore spots any longer.
But for tonight, I'll imagine
Your arms wrapped around meUntil
I find that door.
