Plague


You plague my thoughts
Haunting my every memory
You're like the dream
That's just out of reach
The proverbial carrot
And I'm the donkey
Always chasing after you
So close but never enough

You're the sleepless nights
An empty chair in the restaurant
A half filled coffee mug
I see, feel, imagine you everywhere
But where you need to be
Right beside me

You're the midnight musings
In a hotel room when I've had
One too many cokes
The caffeine coursing through my veins
You were the first love
The first heartbreak

I'd do it all again if it meant
Just one smile on your face
One more late night talk
One more chance with you.
