You

You tell me
You can handle me
That you’re serious
Yet funny and ambitious
You make me believe
You could love me
If only you knew
What love is truly
You say to me
You think of me
But also miss her
Who are you fooling really
I’ll pretend it is me
To make things easier for you
Maybe this way
I won’t have to fight
For something I cannot win

Leave Right Now

I think you’re becoming more
Way more than I thought you would
More than I would like to admit
Way more than you probably should
As I walk along the lake
With the sun in my face
Wind through my hair
Children playing in the grass
Dogs running wild and free
I keep wondering over and over
Why aren’t you here with me
To experience it all
But I know
This feeling won’t last
One day you will go
My heart will leave with it
Just take it all right now
So I won’t be in this too deep
When you leave
I won’t feel a thing

Love Yourself

You’re good at telling stories
Of you living the dream of a self made man
And then you met me
Just another girl
Looking for love
The love she never experienced
The kind of love she’s only ever seen
In chick flicks and Disney movies
A girl with a big heart
Who only sees the good in men
This time I won’t be played
This man is so different from them
This man, he’s the man of my dreams
That’s what she would tell all of her friends
Despite of all the warning signs
All the lies, all her cries
She knows, but she pretends
She sees everything, but she denies
Bright red flags right in her face
But she is colourblind
Her mind just spinning lies
Life is so black and white
He loves her, he loves her not
What about he likes her
Just her body, and not her mind
He uses her, then leaves her
She cries, then blames herself
Then drunk messages him
He replies
She thinks he must be into me
All the while he is with someone else
Then she finds out, still blaming herself
This was all her fault
Should have loved him more
But honey
You should love yourself first
Because you’re worth to be loved

Broken

A broken heart
A broken home
And a broken jaw
There’s a theme
She seems to be in
She never asked
For any of this
Yet she’s stuck
In this cycle
There’s always
A reason to stay
Even more reasons
To leave this place
But the heart wants
What the heart
Does not need
But he definitely
Needs her
So she decides
To give in
One last time
Like before
And the time
Before that
Until that broken jaw
Becomes a broken neck

Forgiveness

Would you forgive me
If I told you
I couldn’t resist
The temptation
The love that people were offering
All around me
While you were gone
Giving me space
Maybe we both misunderstood
What we needed
What we wanted
What we yearned for
But never once dared to express
Now I’m sitting here
All alone
Just wondering
What I had done wrong
If you were ever right
Maybe we both were
In our minds
Just too scared to admit
To scarred to give in
Say what’s really in our hearts
But now I have ruined it
For the both of us
I won’t even ask you to forgive
Simply because I won’t forget
Can I let go now
Will you move on
I guess I already did

Lonely Mind

You were never the one, I think
As we’re both nowhere near to commit
You’re too busy ignoring my calls
While I’m too busy to even care
But I play the part somehow
Try to put an ending to something
That’s never really had a beginning
You were so good with your words
Convincing me that I was always on your mind
But I do mind
As actions speak louder than words
But that’s okay because I have grown deaf
To all that’s you
I’d rather lay lonely in my bed
Than be on your lonely mind
So sweet dreams my lonely lover
I will not be yearning for you tonight
