Maybe Someday

Maybe Someday

A Poem by Carly

Why does this always happen to me?
Here I am again, lying naked in my bed,
Watching as you get dressed,
Morning sneaking upon us already

Your just another lay and I'm still the same
Alone and so accustomed to being left this way

Temptation is deadly
Sex has become so common
I wish I could make it magical again
Maybe someday someone will

Won't you make me breakfast in bed?
And tell me you want to spend the whole day with me
Making memories we'll hold onto
And boy won't you kiss me on my forehead
Ever so gently

Your just another lay and I'm still the same
Alone and so accustomed to being left this way

Temptation is deadly
Sex has become so common
I wish I could make it magical again
Maybe someday someone will

I would treat you like the man you are
Not just another stranger at a bar
And I would love you greatly
Come stay with me

Temptation is deadly
Sex has become so common
I wish I could make it magical again

Maybe someday someone will…

Your writing has a very lyrical sense to it... I had noticed the same in 'Long Gone', a poem which had touched me too deeply to be able to form a review without crying a river all over your page... Written like songs with the seemingly repeating chorus. There is something about this piece which has broke my heart... What is lost when one forfeits themselves to temptation until temptation is all they have at the end of every night, all they wake to every morning. Missing all those precious little gifts... Not once losing sight of what truly matters as the heart remains used and abused and left leagues behind in the wake of passing strangers... Wishing for the one who sticks like glue. Sticks like glue to you. So aware of weaknesses as one aches for a little bit of fiery magic. Here's hoping that you find it again!
