Beautiful Liar


You're a Beautiful Liar
'I Don't Talk To Anyone'
You Don't Talk To Anyone, When You Don't Feel Like Talking To Anyone
(That's When There's Nothing Say)
'You Exaggerate Your Knowledge Of Me'
Doesn't make you special or above the laws of love
Your wars in life
Not out
'i am with who i am when i want to bra, you don't know the family situation.
don't act like you do. you don't know my story and i don't expect you to.'
And I said exactly what you did
And like I say, push all you like I'm still here
'happy for you, we'll see how long it lasts.'
So used to being deserted, u push before you get close.
I can endure these storms

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
