My falsetto isn’t pitch perfect but baby,
I’ll sing for you
I dance like a two year old, Two days and two nights
To learn a move, but pull me close and baby,
I’ll dance for you
Some of the words you type I want to read
But some of the things you say, I do not want to hear,
As long as we’re talking, I want you to know that
I’ll always listen
From you, I want it all, the good the bad, the ugly
Every time I look at you, my heart screams
I want to experience it all with you
Do what lovers do, but I can’t while you’re staring at her.
I would do it all for you, if I was certain that I have your heart,
But you cannot book a heart; it’s not an air ticket
I often wonder how a soul can be so perfect.
I was hoping you’d have a “cool boy” attitude
And be rude like the other ones but you’re kind and
For that, I fight for you, I will fight for you
But you should know, I do it with a screaming heart
I’ve archived your chat about a hundred times
Typed and deleted messages about a thousand times
But I picture us together under a sunset so I reply to you.
My heart is not made of stone, baby
Don’t play with it
I could be the bad character in a movie
But this is real life and I was hoping that baby,
You’d choose me
Because whether it’s January or December,
In the rain or in the sun shine
I’d choose you
You and she have history, so many memories
I get that, but I want you to know that sometimes,
I catch you staring at her the way I stare at you and baby,
It hurts me
My heart screams so loud, it could jump out of my chest
If she means a lot to you, like you mean a lot me, you don’t have to choose,
I will choose for you, I will walk away
I know what it’s like, what it’s like to fall for you
I don’t blame her.
It’s been a month since we spoke,
Since I heard your ringtone,
The messages stopped coming in and
It’s really been a month
Since I’ve cried and said my goodbyes.
You didn’t check up on me,
And you once said you loved me.
I believed you, as easy as A, B, C
I wrote so many poems for you
Picked up so many songs for us
I wanted you to knock on my door
I wanted you to apologize and ask me to dance
I wanted you to be the good guy in a movie,
What a dream, cause all it took was one month
For you to run back into her arms,
So all the poems, I burnt them up.
My heart screams still,
But this time, it’s not for you
Little fragments appear in my thoughts but
They do not move me as they did,
It’s been a great achievement, crossing this bridge
And if it breaks I know I won’t have any regrets.
I will meet new people, Fall in love and,
Perhaps maybe go to France like thirteen year old me always wanted
For now, I’ll go camping.
Singing with random strangers while firewood keeps the fire burning
The poems come easy now, I write about birds and gardens
Thank you for saying good bye, because of that
I can finally say hello to a new chapter
I hope she makes you happier than I ever could
And that you treat her better than you treated me.
