Expectation is the root cause of all heartache
Our old dear friend Shakespeare once said
And I do believe it’s rather practical
To take advice from the dead

He knows what he was talking about
He understood the human plight
And this plight that I’m about to speak of
Has brought my longing to new heights

I’ve been doing alright by myself
Found ways to subdue the  loneliness
But the more your presence hovers
The more I start to crave togetherness

I want you to say “I’ve finally found you”
I want to say I’m all you need
I want you to want to be with me
Love, lust and all it’s greed

I want you to hold my hand
Keep me safe in your embrace
I want to wake up lying next to you
Study the laugh lines of your face

I want to be with you when I’m happy
Share the things that make me sad
I want to listen to all your stories
All the good and all the bad

I want us to go on crazy adventures
Watch the sunrise as we drink some tea
I want us to give each other
All of you and all of me

I can go on and on forever
About all the things that I desire
These thoughts that keep my breath held in
More ways to fuel the fire

But I rather not have expectations
Keep my indulgent feelings covert
Because at the end of this encounter
I’ll be left to bear the hurt
