Pointless Scribble

A pointless scribble

is not so simple

when it comes to how I feel for you.

My mind stutters—

what do you expect from a wallflower?

The thought of “US

even has me jealous.

Peeking through the blue lines,

scribbled feelings hide.

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 it comes to love

I’m not great at one-liners—that much is obvious

I won’t climb mountains or swim through an ocean

to prove my devotion.

When it comes to love, I’m completely oblivious.

I’m sort of like a ‘hand-me-down’ kind of guy.

Not the storybook Prince Charming,

Dashing, or Daring.

When it comes to love, I’m better at Good-bye’s.

I know I’m not a romantic

but I can be passionate,

resilient, and patient.

Unfortunately,

when it comes to love, I don’t know anything about it.

Can't Let Go

Recurring nightmares of loving you

still make me sweat.

I can’t take back honest words—

words I don’t regret

saying.

 

I’m honestly happy

you’re better off without me.

I don’t ever want you to

feel like this.

Lost without a kiss…

Feeling inadequate or passionless…

That part of me

is bearable and unfortunate.

 

Swollen from crying—

tears I don’t want you to see.

Just do me a favor…

pretend you’re smiling for me.

So I can pretend

that I can live like you do—

blissfully happy without me.
