I need more

I've begun to see now how I've added up,

No matter what they always say I do so much,

How can I repay you, for all you've done for me?

My reply is always nothing, your friendship is all I need.

But sometimes in life there's something just not there,

No matter how hard I try, I just can't make them aware,

I need more in my life, I do indeed have a heart,

But whenever I try to hold your hand, you make me fall apart.

You always came to me first, said I was your best friend,

Those moments you held me, I hoped would never end,

The tears you shed always left a mark on my shoulders,

The second I profess the feelings, I see everything start to smolder.

I just can't figure out why I'm not used to this already,

Getting turned down and the rejections are the only thing that's steady,

But no matter what I take the load whenever your world gets heavy,

I think I found out that wanting love for me is just senseless and petty.
