What’s Love Got To Do With Us

I need you, I need you not

I miss you, I miss you not

I need things uncomplicated

But why are we making these strings of attachments

He loves me, he loves me not

I want him, I want him not

But what is there to want

If he doesn’t want you back

What is there to love

If you don’t know what love is

If he doesn’t love me

But what does love got to do with us

If all you want is my body

If all I want is your touch

But what is there to want

If we both want different things

What’s love got to do with us


Here and Now

I can’t eat
I can’t sleep
I can only dream
Of you and me
What have you done to me
What will I do to you
What can we really do
But to live
In our own fantasy
Where you and me
Can be
Young wild and free
But what about
The here and now

Another Draft

It’s getting late right now
Probably should be sleeping
But instead i’m writing
Words of life, of love, of destiny
It never ends, it seems
I make so many drafts
Yet I never publish them
Not because I can’t
But because I shouldn’t
I wonder if anyone knows
The secrets I have been keeping
That i’ve been barely sleeping
That i’ve been secretly praying
For someone to wake me up
From this dream
Is it an illusion
Is it real
Is it wishful thinking
Or a nightmare
When will I know
Do I want to
Or is the torture
Something I need
Better than reality
