“I want someone who can talk about their feelings with me

who wants to spend their free time with me

who says and shows how much they care about me.”

And to make sure you really understood, I said

“I want someone who would watch my house at night

to make sure it didn’t burn down

because they forgot to blow out the candle after we say goodnight.”

And in your eyes I knew you remembered

that love you didn’t have for me.
