What good is calling me a beauty
If you only admire from afar
Is flirting but a fleeting whimsy when
from your true self I'm forever barred?
Why whisper to me words like honey
Then tomorrow you would never say
That I'm the one you long to be with
As you're determined to stay away?
Why bother to plant sweet kisses
When from them our love won't grow
Don't hint that you'll be always with me
Come morning you won't want to know
Why enfold me in your warm embraces
then for days you just leave me cold
with no texts, no calls, no emails,
So my poor heart would shrivel and fold
You're silent because you don't want me
I'm so easy for you to neglect
Not really in your hopes or wishes
What future could I ever expect?
No promise of love's commitment
No ties for our souls to bind
Others always more important
I'm the first one who would slip your mind
I'm patient and forever waiting
but I am just an object d'art
As I'll never be your deepest longing
We would always be a vow apart.
I'm a wonder for you to look at
A beauty for your eyes to behold
But you've touched me, and then you broke me
So now I will never be sold.
