LET ME REST

  

LET ME REST


I’m tired of being Number 2 
Second fiddle to all you say and do 
To everything else important to you
I’m 10 secs away from being through

You say…

“Ain’t nobody else like you…
Can’t you see?”
Your chest swole with pride 
Are you trying to convince me?

You got me darting in and out of traffic
Trying to catch your eye
Risking my safety
For one moment by your side

I know that you’re busy
I’m busy too
Though you’d never know how busy
Cause I ALWAYS make time for you

Tired of heart palpitations 
Bracing myself for maybe flirtations 
Standing by for maybe notifications
Waiting for maybe reciprocations

Either you want me…or you don’t
I can handle the truth
It’s the uncertainty I won’t 
Deal with, I too got a sweet tooth 

I want to share so much with you 
See the world through your eyes 
I’m weary filling in all the blanks
You don’t speak, leaving me to surmise 

It feels so good to be wanted
Found attractive 
Pursued
Yeah uh that’s what I do for you
Can I get some of that too?

Now I’ve been very patient
But this ship’s about to sail
Though I’ve deemed you a perfect 10
Relegating me to the side? EPIC FAIL

I want more than wanting you
You said that it was mutual 
That I occupy a space
Like no other in your mental 

can’t forget about you 
You never forget your first
The first one that dares you
To really obey your thirst

You can do no more to me 
Than I actually allow
Not passing the buck or blame 
Just thought you were 
Worth my while

I’m ready to shine 
Let’s step outside
No explanations needed
I don’t wanna be your secret 

Am I too bold?
Too high risk?
Or maybe too direct?

Too vocal?
Too vibrant?
You ain’t seen nothing yet

I’m tired of feeling restrained,
Hindered, limited, stunted
Though both under oath
You have the capacity to accommodate my growth 

I don’t wanna recoil
Or go into remission
Be reminded…I’m worthy of you Defending your position

Look I laid it on all the table
I’m an Open Book Test
Either you’re going to take me
Or in peace LET ME REST
