on second thought…

i don’t think about your smile
or gazing into your eyes.
i don’t imagine your sweet kisses
or your body close to mine..
on second thought- maybe i do.

and my mind doesn’t think about us together
or how it’d be if you were mine.
my thoughts don’t wander off almost constantly
to another place and time…
on second thought- maybe they do.

and i don’t really love you or need you
or wish this ache to have you would subside.
perhaps it’s loneliness taking its toll
and i don’t really need you in my life.
but on second thought- i think i do.
