How long will I pretend not to love you?
How long will I ignore?
How long till this ravenous desire comes to the fore?
How long will I ponder what loving you has cost me?
How long will I brood and feel unlucky?
For how long will my need for you make my own brain distrust me?
For how long can I stare at these pictures in longing?
For how long will my feelings, with you, search belonging?
How long can you cavort all the while leaving me hanging?
How much longer till the intensity consumes me?
How many more times will I let my passion fool me?
How many more times will you break my heart most cruelly?
How much longer will I fantasize?
How many more nights will I lay and cry?
How much longer will I continue to buy your lies?
If I had to estimate.
I’d wait how long it takes
To be honest, it’s hopeless
Imprisoned in a cage of your face.
I want to give you my seed.
As well as all the best parts of me.
But to be honest, it’s hopeless
My patience is no match for your greed.
