Paradox

I’m trying my best not to like you But you’re treating me like the flower that I am It’s making me soft and I’m smiling for no reason at all I’m no good at love I’m better at omitting the truth Concealing my heart I’m no good at hugs Worse with goodbyes You’re exactly what…

Her

They say her presence is overwhelming That her energy takes up too much space in the room Her heart is on fire Everyone she loves burns down to their core She is not for the weak She rides the wave like a G Ask what’s his name… I can feed your urges Splurge on your…

Reflections.

I remember your words You said there was a “missing link between us” A link that went missing suddenly Two years down the drain Dressed in your disguise You said goodbye All I could do was cry I used to picture you with her As your lies were revealed I wanted to be in her…

The Catch.

A crowded room A drink or two Around here they call us regulars We’re dancing close We’re in amazement The room is spinning The people are a blur Their eyes all on us Tunnel vision All I see is you Who is this man? Where did he come from? He just turned all my failures…

Lost and found

They say to get over someone, to get under someone I admit the thought crossed my mind Turns out self destruction is no longer my thing I can’t find that girl That girl you used to know I look in the mirror I look at old photos I hear an old song She left me…

Phoenix

Your words burned me down Chased away all the sanity thats left in me I ask for guidance I ask these questions I ask for a sign He gives me another lesson He makes me face myself He wants me to fight him But he fights dirty He wants me to fight me So let…

Yours truly.

I laid in bed I prayed to god To keep you safe I reflected on the day There’s a lump in my throat A pain in my chest My eyes puffy and soar I haven’t ate since Saturday morning I haven’t slept since Friday night Saw my reflection in the mirror I could no longer…

Sweet spot

I have these foot prints in my heart They confined me to this bed They confined me to this room I remember a time when I couldn’t stomach the pain I stayed up late I cried for days I couldn’t breathe I fell to my knees The memories wouldn’t die The movies were on repeat…

Distance

I guess I’m supposed to unlearn you Pretend we didn’t have long nights Conversations while we sipped on coffee Conversations while we got high on life I guess I’m supposed to pretend you didn’t leave me stranded Take me for granted Push me aside, for someone new I guess I’m supposed to pretend That I…

Remember me.

You never said a lie You understood that the best dressed lie Hurt more than the truth You gave me patience For you understood Like me You’ve been hurt You gave me space We took our time For we knew It would never run out So charming So clever You made me laugh until it…

The irony.

I fell asleep on a bed of lies I tossed and turned With tears in my eyes Asking myself why Hours that turned into days Days that turned into months Months that turned into years The only thing that made me crazy Was thinking I knew you Forgive me for thinking We shared a bond…

Host

I thought I saw you in this boy But he was lost and had to go away He did the time Tried to come back But it was too late He said I do If only she knew I thought I found you in forever But forever is gone and so are you I broke…
