I think I might need you,
But here's the thing:
I'm spinning out of control
And careening off the side of the road.
I pretend to hold on to the wheel,
But we both know I'll crash.

It wasn't a fair fight.

If you would listen,
If you would actually listen,
You would hear me whispering
"I want you."
"I need you."
"You're mine."


And if you would listen,
If you would actually listen,
You would know that
We are horribly wrong
For each other,
And that my words mean nothing.

But what's to stop us from
Sharing our sheets anyway?
We sleep folded together
Like slips of origami paper
Pressed so tightly that
We could not possibly split.

I think I might need you,
But here's the thing:
I really wish I didn't.
I wish it was you,
And not me.
I always care too much...

I am experiencing the same thing, except I'm the one who is watching from the side lines wishing I could stop them from doing this...very beautiful by the way

I so can relate to this.

Ooh this has a nice rhythm.
That second to last verse has this precise and delicate descriptiveness to it that kind of ties the whole poem together.
