Come Back

Lamya Chawaf

Don’t know if you’re still there, 
Don’t know if you still care. 
I try to call, I try oh I try. 
Please come back, it’s not too late 
You’ve messed up. She’s messed up. 
Are you there? Or over here? 
You’re like smoke that comes and goes. 
You’re like a clock that keeps on ticking, 
Always making me do a lot of thinking. 
You’re a thunderstorm that fades once i have my rain coat on. 
Like a boat during a storm. 
Trying to keep the tears from running down my face as I pace and pace and pace. 
It’s not a race between you and her. 
So I guess i’ll try to call, i’ll try oh i’ll try.
