"I tell you that there are terrible temptations that it requires strength, strength and courage, to yeild to."- Oscar Wilde, An Ideal Husband.


Walking into school
Meeting our old friends
dont know what to do
Or how the day will end

Into an old room
It hasn't changed
Same old friends
Same games played

Walk to a cafe
Same old chair
Don't know where to look,
Now that you're not here.

Smile at the wall
Take out a book
Listen to a song
Remembering your eyes and that special look.

I'm missing you like crazy
I never thought I wouldn't have my baby
I know you're a part of my soul
But what happened to the rest of me?
believe me, I'm dying to know!

My friends are trying to help,
but I'm playing a broken record all the time.
I have to stop hitting repeat,
I can't stop hitting repeat.

One of my girls
Told me one night
You're afraid of the future
And that ain't right.
You can't walk in the old aisles,
Believe me honey, there ain't no end to those miles.

I'm sitting afraid.
I'm thinking I'll always be alone.
And I will be, if things don't change.
This mind of mine I have to rearrange.

A voice gives me hope,
the ghost of you gives me a look.
And I need to stop the burn,
cause I never liked the hurt.
And hope never helps when its between you and me,
But its all anyone has ever got.
And I need it to be.

I get up and I try to smile.
And I walk part of a mile
I meet an old girlfriend,
I'm shocked to see the changes in her.
But what about me?

I can sit in a corner and weep all the time.
or I can sit up and live life once in while.
You are a part of me, that I can't change.
But the rest of my heart I will rearrange.


The author's comments:
This was inspired by one of my friends.
One day as I spoke to her she burst out to say that "you had a wonderful time when it was happening, but now that its over you're holding on in a way that isn't healthy. The things that you say to me just sound like you're afraid of whats going to happen next. Change will take place, and if you accept it you will like it."
