Dagger in My Heart

You talk about her and it’s not the dagger in my heart I thought it would be.

Still aimed in my direction it whispers right past my ear, the dagger of self doubt.

If it’s your true love I’ll gladly lay down in defeat but you speak with lust

and I can’t reason your insecurities this time.

There’s a line of new girls you’re hoping will take your mind off her.

I wonder why you keep me at a distance

when I’m a master of distraction and seduction.

Not a Damsel

I’m not asking you to be my shinning knight

but you should treat me better and start acting right.

I don’t need saving, in fact I do just fine on my own

So if you want me in your life then you gotta grow up.

I could be good for you if you let me

but you’re too scared I’ll end up being your weakness.
