temporary

jealously i watch you dance from temporary girl to temporary girl
they are wholesome, and perfect, and gone in a week but i guess that's what you want
and i want to offer you forever but i know, your forever is different to mine

when i admitted to you, the things i never thought i would say out loud
you didn't react like i thought, but i guess you didn't really react at all, did you
your tongue a scorpion's tail, your silence stung more than words ever could

i have felt myself evolving over the months- over the years -since i met you
from the awestruck wide eyes of a young teenager infatuated
to the resigned tired eyes of someone who is sick of being in love

and trust me, i know i should wait for someone who would offer me always
but i also know, i would smile while i turn myself from a forever soul into a temporary girl
if it meant i could spend one short bittersweet week pretending you mean it when you say you love me
