Don’t Tell Me

Don’t tell me those kisses

Are lies

Don’t tell me those touches

Are myths

Don’t tell me that love

Never lived here

Here in this space

Between you and I

And that now you

No longer hear my cry

No

No don’t tell me

Don’t tell me those eyes don’t reflect

Don’t tell me those hands don’t feel

Don’t tell me that your heart don’t beat

Here in this space

Between you and I

And that now you

No longer see my pain

No

No don’t tell me

Don’t tell me those lungs

Don’t grasp for air

Don’t tell me those veins

Don’t pump blood

Don’t tell me that feelings don’t exite

Here in this space

Between you and I

And that now you

No longer feel my love

No

No don’t tell me

Don’t tell me that all

I’ve ever done

Doesn’t matter

Don’t tell me that all

I’ve ever done

Was a waste

Don’t tell me that all

I’ve ever done

Was solely my fault

No

No love

Don’t tell me that all

The love we made

Was in simple vain

Because my love

You’ll give me the greatest pain

You’ll give me the greatest reason

To cause pain

No

No don’t tell me

This space

Between you and I

Was never meant to stay

No don’t tell me

All I was to you

Was an overnight overdue

Always The One…

You are The One

You know you are The One

The One to give too much

of yourself

to boys who pretend to be men

You are The One

You know you are The One

The One to love hard

every go round

only to be dropped

to the ground

no warning

no signs

no flashing lights

dark skies

but you are The One

The One they always come

back to

those boys couldn’t find you

in those girls

they couldn’t find you

while looking at glass windows

You are The One

You know you are The One

and while it pains you at times

it’s a lovely reminder

You are The One

to make boys melt

You are The One

to make men cry

You are The One

to ride off in the night

looking so right

right pass

those idiotic boys

those boys who claim to be men

You are The One

You know you are The One

The One

they will wish for until the end
