the one

you are not the one
that tucks me into bed at night
you are the reason
i cannot sleep

i do not love you
because you are good for me
or because you say and do
all the right things

you are the one
that makes me question
everything i thought i knew
about love
and lust
as two separate entities

you crawl under my skin
and unnerve me
you make me feel reckless
and out of control

you are not the one
i’ve been waiting for
you are the one
that i never saw coming
