The Stars Above

The claws close in like a steel cage
Biting in, taking my breath away
And I can't win today.
The drive is strong -
To lash out against the status quo
Me, me, me,
I fight against the flow.
But she tempers me,
Blunts the blade with her innocent words
That she uses indiscriminately.

I'm not special.
And I won't ever be.

She doesn't feel how my heart slams against the cages
Churning wheels on what ifs,
Playing tear-damp melodies
To the tune of her litanies.
But I cling harder - what else is there to do?
Until I'm touching her
She won't believe it's true.
And I will, too.
The space between is what's collapsing me
Tightening the shackles of my jealousy
I'm wondering
Is this all the love I'm left with?
Is this the hand I'm dealt with?

But I wouldn't trade her,
Not for all the stars above.
And if she never notices,
I'm still in love.

The cruel thoughts of late-night signoffs
Circle in my mind
There might be hope here
Although it seems so far away, sometimes.
She might not know it yet
But maybe, if she puts together why
My world's revolving,
Around the place where she resides
She'll come to realize
She's been wrong for all her life.

So maybe now it's hopeless
But I'm still in love,
And I'd rather have her anything
Than all the stars above.

  Beautiful!!! You think that you are not special but your poem shows you are

She doesn't feel how my heart slams against the cages
Churning wheels on what ifs,
Playing tear-damp melodies
To the tune of her litanies.

these are the most impressive lines along with the basic refrain of the poem. I am the fan of all sincere lovers in the world, you see they are evolved beings, they give expression to the essence and needs of their soul, they don't shy away.... you are one of the geniuses... or i think so.
