You’ve found heaven in my arms
True love in my eyes
Undying passion on my lips
But it all goes unnoticed.
Baby, I could have loved you forever
but you’re showing me you don’t deserve it.
I make sure I look good for you
Help you unwind after a long day
Try to put some of your weight on my plate.
I know you’ve never had as good as me
so maybe you don’t know how good you have it.
Are you pulling away or is it all in my head?
Are you acting shady or is my sight tinted?
The trust fell off the mantle
and I’m still examining the broken pieces on the floor
I see my doubt in the reflection of the glass.
I still have your heart around my neck
But will I have it for long?
Has my shininess worn off yet?
Are you tired of me now?
Do I bore or annoy you?
Have your eyes began to wander?
See all I can think of are the ways
this won’t work out.
I know you love me
But will that be enough to sustain you?
I’m wondering if im doing enough to keep you satisfied
I know you’ve been entertaining ideas in your head
But tell me, am I the only one you’ll let in your bed?
– June 2018
It’s so easy to fall back in love with you
Would you tell me if I was making a mistake
Try to save me from another heartbreak?
You want attention from every direction.
If that’s the case, I can handle the rejection.
I wish we didn’t connect the way we do
It would be so much easier letting you go.
Caring and sweet, we’re good for each other.
But you know I’m not the one for you
and a piece of my heart breaks off in the distance.
The rain gently falls
and I wonder if it helps lull you to sleep.
I remember things you told me
from 3 years ago
But I’m wondering
if you’re still the same person now.
The thunder cracks and I realize
I’m wrong about you again
You’re so smooth
I love the way you move.
I want to hear those sounds
you can’t hide.
The ones you don’t even realize you’re making.
The ones that course the blood through my veins.
I want to give you pieces of me
So slow and steady
I hope they sneak right by you.
Let me under your skin
I promise it will feel good.
Today is the day!
Even the Leaves is now available on Amazon!
I’m thrilled to finally have my third collection out and the creative choices I made this time around. Thank you all for continuing on this journey with me; I never pictured myself having 3 publications while I’m this young.
