Endgame

January 24th, 2022

Am I too obvious
Predictable to a fault
Exposed wounds are bleeding
So you rub it in like salt
Am I too honest for you
Someone that communicates
Feelings are too much
You’re done with my updates
But you’re too inconsistent
You go from hot to cold
I can’t keep up anymore
This routine has grown old
So now it is your turn
And this game is chess
You’ll play checkmate
But I’ve won nonetheless
Because I owe it to myself
After all I’ve been through
It’s time to move on
From this life I outgrew

Long Term

October 5th, 2010

I don’t understand you
You must like to see me squirm
I tried to stop this in its tracks
But these feelings became long term
This never should have started
But I can’t make you go away
And after all this time
I’m losing track of the days
Winter was almost over
When you charmed me with your smile
And now we’re falling back
With these feelings in denial
We need some time apart
So that’s just what we’ll do
You’ll take a vacation
And I won’t think of you
I didn’t do my part
These feelings were too strong
And now you’re done with me
Because in your heart I don’t belong
