Please take: a lover’s note to a past love

Please take the time to forget the bad,

And always remember the fun that we had.

In your arms I felt so warm,

And behind your eyes was a beautiful storm.

I was too shy to look up at you,

You seemed too good for a girl like me.

Then all my fears came true,

Because you needed to set me free.

Please take what I can’t bear,

It was yours after all.

It’s true but so unfair,

That the higher the climb, the harder the fall.

Your heart is hardened where I’m concerned.

You held me close and let me go.

This is just another lesson I’ve learned,

I’ve studied and I finally know

That love eludes me,

And nothing is going to get through to you,

And that includes me.

So you’ll never know that my love was true.

I’m cold and distant now,

Guarding my heart from more pain,

Harboring feelings for you somehow.

I wish them gone since it’s all in vain.

Please take back your past kindness,

And should you ever find this,

Please take me back, too.

Goodbye, Mother

If they scraped me from your womb

My life wouldn’t have to end with a boom

Bang bang holy cow

Vein slicing painful ow

I would have been medical waste

Instead of heartbroken and disgraced

Just letting you know, mother

Having a bad day like every other

I am freaking striking out of this life

I’m caught between blood and more strife

If they vacuum extracted me

I wouldn’t be the failure I turned out to be

So I’ll quit here with a bang bang holy cow

Vein slicing painful ow

Of a distant and bone-chilling heartless goodbye

The moments between my pain outnumber the tears you’ll cry

wishing

I fell in love against my strong will

I promise I love you still

You broke my heart

Tore us apart

Wishing you loved me still

Wishing you loved me still

You invaded my personal space

We were always face to face

You hugged my fears away

Are they back to stay?

Wishing you’d hold me still

Wishing you’d hold me still

The air that stands between here and there

Is all that is left that we still share

A gentle breeze upon my skin

And I am lit from within

Wishing you wanted me still

Wishing you wanted me still

But a wish is a dark star

Compared to a promise, by far

It could never be

Nothing is left for you and me

Wishing you were gone from my heart

Wishing you were gone from my heart

Rock My World

Who am I to begin and end your world?

I’m not some conceited little girl.

Who are you to break this magic spell?

Maybe I’ll climb back down to hell.

I’m fanning the flames of this fire,

clinging on to the last shred of desire.

Should I sleep until the morning light,

instead of begging you to rock my world all night?

Rock my world and let me know

why you would end this magic show,

and tell me that I’m loving you the wrong way,

because I’ll be with another man come Sunday.

I’ll call him and lie when I say

how I’ve done nothing all day.

I’ll see him on Sunday and hold him close,

but I won’t promise that I love him the most.

Who am I to begin and end your world?

I’ll fake it on Sunday as some other man’s girl.

Rock my world and tell me it’s all right.

Come home to hell with me tonight.

It may cut deeper than the sharpest knife,

But it’s true that other guy’s in my life.

Sunday will come and soon be gone,

so please let’s keep this fire burning on and on.
