I get it

Let’s just assume
you’re in your room,
right?

How many tears have you cried
for someone you needed tonight?

If it weren’t a dream,
then who would it be?

What words would you’ve said
to make things right again?

A kiss or a touch?
Is that asking for too much?
I get it.



Let’s just assume
someone else is in their room
thinking and dreaming of you.

Reaching passed the stars
to hold your broken heart.

If it weren’t just a dream,
you’d be all they’d need.

Words needn’t be said
because they’d have stolen your breath.

A kiss or touch
from them would never be enough.


Believe me,
I get it.

Perfect (Cover)

When I’m all alone and the world is asleep,
I wish for that someone who’s dreaming of me.
I need a man to sweep me off my feet
and dry my tears with just a kiss on my cheek.

I thought I knew what love was
but had it all backwards.
I miss the one who was right in my life.
Now that I’m on my own
your side is growing cold.
If only you were here tonight.

Grasping for the stars and not between your arms.
Lying here in the dark, afraid to go to sleep.
I can feel you touch my hair but I know you’re not here
to kiss me. Baby, I’m sorry. You were perfect to me.

When no one is looking

Carnation in color
matching no other
sun kissed are the petals
I dare not disturb her

Instead
I steadily write with my pen
taking note
of how she dances in the wind

She didn’t bob or weave
it was a heartfelt curtsy
Pausing
I saw that she wasn’t free

Ensnared to a life of loneliness
she frees herself in the emptiness
with eyes that glanced her way
She’s alive

Only from a distance 
can she appreciate happiness
