So close yet so far

by remembertoexhale

It is magical
do you know that you are
and you can’t even see it
and I would do anything to
live in your magic 
and let your iridescence shimmer over me
you are in fact
nothing short of spectacular
and it has all been said a million times before
so I have to say it Clementine’s way
“If anyone else were to kiss me,
all they would taste is your name”
because you are all that is within me
stoking the walls of my heart with
the terrible phrase
“so close yet so far”
and my words have no more shimmer 
they do not sparkle
you went and took it all
with the truth in the words
“so close yet so far”
