Write About It

November 12th, 2021

Nothing but Taylor Swift on the radio
What perfect background noise
She knows the words I want to say
But presents with much more poise
Treacherous like my playlist
I picked out these songs
Then I left it all nameless
Because I knew that it was wrong
Invisible strings tugging at my heart
I don’t respond like I should
I only imagined this in my wildest dreams
So I’ll do what Taylor Swift would

Playlist

September 20th, 2021

My words are lost in thoughts
I’m trying to decrypt
They’re jumbled up in code
And I can’t read this script
Twenty-four hours of nameless music
I’ve left it on repeat
To find the message underneath
Am I being indiscreet
The melody is made of letters
In a language I want to know
You can play to the beat of my heart
I’ll be a metronome
Though I am not a muse
I don’t smile like Lana Del Rey
But I can lose myself in the beat
At the moment you press play
I guess my words will never be configured
And maybe this is cliche
But I will listen to the lyrics
Of feelings that I can’t convey


Something We Never Were

March 14th, 2010

You look me in the eyes
And the past comes flooding back
I don’t know what to do
My heart is under attack
I thought this was over
This doesn’t feel right
When you do this to me
I can’t sleep at night
Do you want me
Or do you want her
I’m trying to get over
Something we never were
