I Know

January 25th, 2010

One little lie
I shouldn’t dignify
So I placed a rose in to your hand
You placed your toes in the wet sand
I saw that look inside your eyes
But I let you say goodbye
I know I didn’t try
I know I didn’t try
We crashed on your bed
My chin above your head
In my arms was where you laid
But we soon began to fade
And not the beach, but where we lie
One last kiss before goodbye
Our hands intertwined
Guilty thoughts inside my mind
I let the train pull me away
But it brought you back to me one day
We walked around in the summer air
I just really wanted to care
I know I wasn’t fair
I know I wasn’t fair
Another laying in my bed
Confused thoughts inside your head
I never told you, you were right
My feelings I just couldn’t fight
I wish I could take it back
But then the experience I’d lack
I know that it was wrong
I’d known it all along
I wish I never lied
I’m sorry I didn’t try

Unresolved

January 19th, 2010

I don’t know what to think
The questions pile up
I still don’t have the answers
I guess I’ve been stood up
I’m not sure what happened
You changed then changed again
And after all that happened
We’re still not even friends
Maybe it’s my fault
Did I come on too strong
Those moments we shared all to ourselves
I guess I read those wrong
I’m searching for the answers
There’s nothing there to find
I’m grasping for some context
But I can’t read your mind

Lifeless

August 20th, 2020

What a time
To be alive
Sunlight’s bleeding
Through the sky
The weather rebels
The people do too
You have to think fast
Before lightning strikes you
It’s time to escape
But where do you go
Life as you knew it
Burned with no afterglow
Longing for the past
That you want to revive
Lethargic towards the future
But you want to survive
