i looked at you, you looked at me;
i never could have imagined
that soon we would stand side by side,
both hoping that this will last to the end.
when we first began our journey,
you were no more than a friend;
but soon that would change
as our paths crossed a troubled way.
i began to build a wall,
excluding you from what happened to me;
hoping that you would not see
the flirt i had become.
roaming around from here to there,
a hole in my heart formed.
something was missing, something had changed,
but i was too stupid to admit the truth.
now i can see where i went wrong;
i looked for something i hadn’t truly lost.
i realize that while i was in oz,
what i wanted was back at home all along.
i have broken your heart perhaps once or twice,
leaving you when my heart said stay.
now i realize that i should listen to my heart;
and piece by piece, the ice wall melts…
