Your lonely heart

You just want somebody
To fit into your master plan
You just want somebody
Willing to hold your hand
So you say you love me
Though you don’t know why you do
Cos you don’t love me for me
You love me for you
Tick tock, your time is running out
You’ve got to find her fast
Got to find somebody
Cos you don’t want to finish last
Well guess what, I’m not up for sale
And I don’t want your love
I don’t have a use for it
So move before I shove
Stop trying to shackle me
With artificial claims of love
Release me from your grasping clutch
And let me soar above
For I can see the sun ahead
A beacon in the sky
Let loose your chains around me
Free me and let me fly.

Fake love

I broke the beautiful storyline
Created by my romantic mind
I decided to love him
And showed him so
I peeked and blushed
Like I wanted more

You laughed to yourself
For he was your best friend
And it seemed my attention
Would never end
You knew my secret
Or so you thought
And you knew I knew
That I’d been caught

Then he left
I didn’t see him again
And my infatuation came to an end
But still you smiled
You laughed at me
And then I felt
A new warmth burst free
Was it my mind
Playing tricks on me?

It wasn’t the fake love
I’d forged with your friend
It wasn’t created, it wasn’t pretend
I just wanted to feel
The effect of your smile
For you to look my way
And grin for a while
That cheesy grin
You couldn’t suppress
That quirky smile
That wouldn’t be repressed

And when he returned
I couldn’t care less
Cos no more did I care for his looks
No more did I care for his fame
Cos your erratic ways and impulsive smile
Put them both to shame.

Elephant in the room

You told me that you cared for me
But I already knew it to be true
Though you never saw just how much
My own heart begged for you
Your eyes betrayed your secret
When they’d alight upon my face
And fire at those who came too close
Or look away with too much haste
Yes, I knew you loved me
So I stripped bare my soul
I made myself vulnerable
And revealed you made me whole
But when you said you loved me
It was a confession with a clause
That we couldn’t be together
For our love would ignite wars
But alas, it was too late
We’d kissed the elephant in the room
And life would progress quickly
And we’d soon dance towards our doom.

My person

A loving voice
Cooing in my ear
And warm arms
Holding me near
Calm in a crisis
Strong in a fight
Protecting me
My sturdy knight
A living promise
I’ll be okay
An easy smile
That makes my day
Kissing my brow
Stroking my cheek
Getting me through
Another week
With teasing jokes
To make me laugh
And gentle words
To melt my heart
Thanks for being
My everything
And each day
Making my heart sing.

The magician

You swept me up in your magic
Your quirks, your mystery
Blindfolded, you led me on
With practiced sensuality
Till I believed I loved you
And that you loved me too
But it was all just smoke and shadows
And soon you had vanished too.

The spotlight

All of these years later
Though our lives have completely changed
You still look at me the way you did
Before we became estranged
I’m standing in a crowd
But I feel your eyes on me
Staring with such intensity
Though I don’t know what you see
I haven’t become beautiful
I’m not acting sweet
But to you, I seem an angel
A goddess in the street
Your fingers reach towards me
Before falling to your side
As though there is a force field
You’re struggling to defy
I don’t understand it
Oh what is it you see?
What is it you’re thinking
Each time you look at me?

I’m all sobbed out, I’m broken
I’ve never felt like this before
Then I look up and see you
Standing, staring, at the door
You cross the room in two strides
And collect me in your arms
Hug and hold me close to you
Say I’m safe from any harm
You rock me like a child
Whisper in my ear
And tell me all the things
You know I’m desperate to hear
It’s going to be alright
Everything will be okay
You wipe away fresh tears
And say you’re here to stay
But how can I believe that?
How can I know it’s true?
What if when I look away
I find that I can’t find you
I feel I’m lost in the forest
Grasping after you in vain
Pleading for salvation
Crying out your name
But the darkness envelopes me
A punishing quiet fills the air
And anxiously though I may search
I’ll find no one is there.
