You just weren’t the one for m


Gave me everything You had
Still You weren’t the one for me
Never had a chance to be mad
When You should been the one for me

Drove your car through a snow storm
To prove You were the one for me
Greeting me in fine form
Why couldn’t You be the one for me?

Call You on the phone with nonsense
Because You were there for me
I knew you couldn’t ride the fence
You thought You were the one for me

I spoke up for You when You couldn’t
Did they wonder why You were with me
I spoke up about your pains
Then realized you weren’t the one for me

You see, I should have had the chance
to tell You, to say to You how much more I wanted and needed
But, You made it all about me
and how little I did to keep You happy
You did it all out of necessity
And that’s why, You’re not the one for me

When you think you’ve found love
Don’t look for anything in return
Blessings come from up above
There’s a chance though, You might feel a burn
But, I’m sorry You just weren’t the one for me

Love in Yellow


Cover me in Love, Love
Show me your true color
Don’t leave me with bruises
Just so I can make excuses

Cover me well Love, Love
Make me feel like I should feel
Don’t treat me like some ordinary fellow
Paint me in yellow

Cover me happy Love, Love
And kiss me all night long
Don’t mind my bleeding heart
While you try it all apart

I want to wrap myself around you
Holding on and back so tight
Try to have mercy on me
‘ Cause I’m too bright for the light

Cover me Love, Love
Sing to my front and my back
And if I try and get away Love, Love
Just pick up the slack

Cover me in Yellow Love, Love
Red comes on too strong
Cover me in Yellow, Love
A vase of yellow roses so long

You came


You came
without alerting me
Was I to know
that your feet were clean
before you entered?

Now, there isn’t a vacuum
to clean up the mess
You made inside the home
I made comfortable for myself
My self now houses
all that your soul conquered
before

You came
to get me to say,
“I’m sorry you had to wait”
If only I held out a little longer,
You couldn’t have come
and I couldn’t hate you
like I do now

It would have been
someone else
who cared about what
they brought inside

With Me


That threshold wasn’t as
threatening once I passed the door
There seemed to be the need to
back up and back in repeatedly
Just to get a feel of the room
We danced and bounced around
so much until I exploded
And You were right there
with Me
How quickly must we leave
this lustful sanctuary of Home
before that threshold needs repair
Still, You will be With Me
Forever feeling that first feeling
again, and the amount given out
Anaphora will be our best friend
and Pandora rests on the souls of our feet
At least, that’s what I tell myself
even when You are not with Me
Civility may not find me soon enough
since your eyes reveal every reason
for my backing in and out until I can’t
can’t stand any longer
and You can’t stop showing love
with a threshold to be cherished
when You are with Me
When You are with Me
I feel larger than life every time
And You never complain
so You keep showing love
with a threshold that is cherished
And I feel threatened every time

The Church of Mercy


Show me again

How we do it

Do I have to be under covers

or is it something I can share

with my brothers

Show me again

How we do it

 

I may dress the same

as they do

Or maybe I just hold the chalice

better for You

Oh, the things I hold

 

Reading as You talk aloud

I get a sense of urgency

to be proud

Such a sensation

Comes over me

Until a face turns and gives me pity

 

Show me again

How we do it

 

Your word is Your bond

and of that, I’m quite fond

To know that I should know better

when Your voices becomes

an “I Love You” letter

Never will I divulge my secret crush

Hush.

 

So, Show Me again

What made You do this to me

 

Was it the air I breathed

when You walked by

Did my subservience entice You

and fixate Your eyes on the sky?

How many times did I

touch Your robe

Before we made plans

to see the golden globe?

 

But, in time, I’ll be on my own

Trying to establish a name

from which I’ve grown

And Anaphora will keep haunting me

in ways that it could only be

Show Me again

what made You do this to me

 

Show Me again

so I can have my one true friend

Quitting.


I must quit you.
You speak to me,
as if I’m not there.
Then, You dissipate.
Together, we sing
so joyfully,
only to escape my spirit
in search of my soul.
What more melody
can I take in, 
until I am hooked
at first stanza’s end?
I know I am here.
And I sense corruption,
a cou-de-ta to make me into
a robot of dysfunction.
It’s been fun
even when I didn’t have none.
Just too many to choose from
all in one night.  When I do.
That is a lighter I never want to use again.

How could I Love?


How could I love
When I never
Knew what it was?
I held their hands
And made demands
All just because

How could I love
When I never
Knew what it was?

Eyes and a smile
Made living all worthwhile
I gave and gave
What was it to behave?
Mama told me to save
Like voices from the grave
Now, it’s too hard to shave
Where was the rave?

What can I give
Without a will to live?

Take Me Back


When your world

Has since grown colder

As if you’d never know

And when your grip

Grows bolder

Won’t you try and let it show

 

Take Me Back

 

For all the times

We were together

I remember them very well

For all the times

Never said Never

We would live to tell the tale

 

And if you don’t like

Those late night phone calls

Take Me Back

 

Take Me Back

 

Do you still bat your eyes

Just to try to get attention

Are you sitting next to

Across from someone else

 and sorting through their lies

Held hostage in detention

 

Take Me Back

Take Me Back

 

Before you begin to feel the breeze

From the leaves that fell from the trees

To the ground

Take Me Back

Take Me Back

 

Was it I who made the mistake

Of letting my heart break

Or was it you who got a clue

From the ones you said who loved you

 

Anyway,

Take Me Back

Take Me Back

Take Me Back

 

Even a man can get classified

Into someone he wished had died

But a woman can be scorned

Into back to being born and mourned

 

But I know you, so

Take Me Back

Take Me Back

Take Me Back

 

I was there before

And I can stay again

Not we’re settling a score

With a mean and jealous friend

 

Take Me Back
