Secrets

April 25th, 2011

I wonder what you’re thinking
When you look at me
Are you a perfect gentleman
Or are you undressing me
With your eyes
They say a penny for a thought
But are these things that can’t be bought
Am I like the dust you sweep
Under the rug
Expecting company
Keeping me a secret
Or am I not in your thoughts
Do you look right through me
As your eyes burn into me
With someone else in mind

I’m running in this race
With no destination
My heart beats off pace
I don’t know which location
But my anxiety eats away
Like I’ve done something wrong
Constant imposter syndrome
When I just want to belong
A burst of inspiration
Is blown out like a flame
But the burning continues
I can still feel the pain
And I can’t help it sometimes
I feel like a burden
Using words against me
Is this life when you’re urban

Tragic Hero

Without fail our paths cross
And I still feel your fire
Even though it burns me
It’s you I desire

I don’t know where we stand
Because you still look back
I want you to save me
But you’re my heart attack
