A Toy

By: Sarah Ann

I need someone to love me the way 'he' used to do
I need someone who listens to me, someone just like you
You know I am lonely and I know you are, too
But I can't be your toy, I'm afraid I'll fall for you.

You want us to be more than friends, but less than a pair
You want to have your fun with me and expect me not to care
I must admit that being physical is a lot of fun
But why am I the only one who feels guilty when we're done?

I don't hear from you for days and never get a call
In fact, it's very seldom I hear from you at all
When you call, I'm so happy, I forget how long it's been
Then I go through this painful process all over again.

How do I tell you "no" and still keep you as a friend?
What if I told you I liked you; would you stick by me to the end?
I need to know if your feelings run as deep as mine
I need to know if I'm just a toy... that's going to get left behind.
