Being a woman is a terribly difficult task, since it consist principally in dealing with men. -Joseph Conrad


This is not for you
I feel a breeze across my neck, and I hear a whisper in my ear

I’ve walked miles and days, seen good and bad, and

It tears my heart. I sit down and write letting me wander

Through the thoughts in my head, but remember this,

Is not for you.
I hear a whisper in my ear, telling me to breath, huff and puff

In and out, my legs keep going but I’m tired

I keep wanting to stop. I’ve stopped to write about anything

I want

Letting go, but remember this is not for you.
But part of this I sing to you hoping you will hear me……

I took a new breath to let you know, this isn’t a letter

This isn’t a love song, this isn’t a threat, and its

Not for you. Just be patient because I’m at a loss for words

Figuring out what to say but know this wasn’t meant for you
It seems a new breath is what I needed something to clear my mind

I fight the urge to let myself write about what hurts

And I see the pencil fits perfectly between my ring finger

And thumb and my ring sparkles in the light as I fight the

Temptation to write about evil, because this is not for you
If anything and everything could clear my mind, I’d be an airhead

I simply want to end my journey and stop walking

And it kills me to know I keep writing about you

I can’t stop for my left hand has no idea what the

Right is doing, and yet I keep writing words that aren’t for you
But part of this I sing to you hoping you will hear me……

I took a new breath to let you know, this isn’t a letter this isn’t
A love song, this isn’t a threat, and it’s not for you. Just be patient
Because I’m at a loss for words figuring out what to say but know,
This has turned into a loving, threatening letter that was indeed meant for you

This wasn't written about somebody, it was just written. (these aren't realy song lyrics, i just didn't know what else to choose)
