My Sweet Nothing (a poem, intended lyrics, dedication)

My Sweet Nothing
Walking towards me
I peer up and smile
Corners of your mouth lift
slightly, barely,
No one else notices
But a flower of compassion
Blooms in me with an explosion
So forceful I feel sick
You noticed me
my imagination?

I understand your soul
Complicated and deep
Forbidden yet beautiful
I can give you everything you need
But we can never be
You will always leave me wondering
You will always be
My sweet nothing

And here we sit
Talking of her and him
Not willing to admit
Where we'd be if not for them
I love him more than the skies
But I lose sleep
Wondering what's in that universe
Behind your eyes
Sometimes feeling guilty
But mostly filled with curiosity
I understand your soul
Complicated and deep
Forbidden yet beautiful
I can give you everything you need
But we can never be
You will always leave me hoping
You will always be
My sweet nothing

Things are supposed to fade
Into time's endless masquerade
Or so they say
Yet in my thoughts you have stayed
You tell me I get you
I chase away the blue
I know I can give you what you crave
What you deserve
What you've been cheated out of
I can give you love
But I have none left to spare
This is one thing I cannot share
I understand your soul
Complicated and deep
Forbidden yet beautiful
I can give you everything you need
But we can never be
You will always leave me smiling
You will always be
My sweet nothing
And I still lay awake
To this day
My love for him far from fake
But behind my eyes scenes still play
Of you and me
Everything we could be
Please dont ever forget
That you are beautiful and pure
And for you I will always be here
Please dont ever lose sight
Of who you are in life
I understand your soul
Complicated and deep
Forbidden yet beautiful
I can give you everything you need
But we can never be
You will always leave me wondering
You will always be
My sweet nothing
I can give you everything you need
But we can never be
You will always leave me wondering
You will always be
My sweet nothing
You can only be
My Sweet Nothing...
