i hope you know how much and how completely i love you
if you do not, i shall tell you, show you and whisper it to you every day
with every look
stars in my bed
tears on my pillow
rainbows above our heads
That’s water under the bridge now,
collecting stones and fish.
tumbling through weeds,
disturbing muddy banks.
Why should I change and rearrange what’s on the surface
When you won’t even begin
to look outside your range?
I’m sick of painting two dimensional characters,
She wipes a tearful cheek
and scratches at her brown skin.
Unable to speak, she’s locked herself in.
Spindly legs walk a lonely tightrope
what is it you want from me?
you want me to fret and cry?
to scream and shout?
or to tell you it's ok?
your drowning in past regrets
bitter about what you can't change,
chasing a girl just out of you reach.
your sensitivity and advice
Wine stained lips
Meet wine stained lips.
stand with me on a mountain
dance with me in the rain
hold me in the morning
make me forget my pain.
the loneliness never goes away
and there is always a sense of despair that accompanies it.
hand in hand they swim up to the surface
and linger just below
