For Only Two Seconds

For Only Two Seconds

I tried to see how long I could stay focused without thinking of you,
And those two seconds made me feel like you had gone for so long.
Then I made a fool of myself as I hummed and wrote about you in a song.

My talents are rare and far in-between and singing is not something to hear.
This voice of mine cannot carry a tune, yet I sang about missing your smile.
And before long people stared at me as I kept singing for more than a mile.

I tried to cover my ears to see how long I could go without hearing your voice.
The ear drums made noises like the wind does inside the seashell at the beach.
And the sound frightened me as I wept as I felt like you were out of my reach.

It just seems that my love for you is so strong that I can’t be without you.
My mind is so crazy that even in my sleep I continue to see you so clear.
Your beauty is so breathe taking that my heart feels your presence so near.

I tried to block your name from my brain to see how long I could continue too.
And after two seconds your name echoed inside my head with illusions of love.
Your name became a passion of emotions spinning inside and heavenly above.

With my eyes shut I envisioned touching your tender skin with tenderly strokes.
My fingers felt the vibrations of the warmth emitting the heat within the blood.
And my eyes though shut emptied in tears of joy that soon they formed a flood.

I tried pretending you didn’t exist to see if I could continue living without you.
Those two seconds drove me wild missing those beautiful eyes that look at me.
My legs buckled in shame and the weakness forced me to go down on one knee.

Inside my rib cage I felt my heart pounding in fear of loosing those two seconds.
So now I don’t try to forget about you for any length of time as you are here.
Sleeping in my bed as I watch you my love and I am happy without any fear.
