"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter won't mind."


Forever

is a three letter word.

L-i-e.

Because

somebody wrote on the window

and smudged it,

libel;

let me tell you, "babe"

your hands are looking

mighty

dirty.

Would you believe me

if I said

"I don't need you"?

And to think

I almost changed my life

for you.

And to imagine

forever

with you.

And to remember

every night

we talked

sang

shared

and

I cried.

I don't see

you

anymore.

It's more like I see

lie

lie

lie

raising up hopes

I'd rather you'd just

left me

where you found me.

Would you believe me

if I said

"I understand"?

You know

you can't run from

you,

and I guess I can't

either.

You filled me

with all those

hopes,

promises,

l-word

adorations

with my crossed fingers

for hope

and yours

for going back

on your f---ing word.

I'll live in a cage

since

you live in a cave

and I know

this makes no sense

but darling,

~"it's not worth the trouble"~

to

decipher me,

anyway.

This may not even make sense. But it felt good to write anyway. All I can do is hope somebody enjoys it.
