bittersweet

Your sweetness – I sense it
Your kiss hesitant left me defenseless
My strength is now weakness as I’m left helpless
knowing you meant it is senseless

You always made me side step
And start to stutter
                                                                                                                                                                                    Stutter                                                                                                                        …Stutter

Saying something or another….                                                       When those butterflies fluttered
                                                  I tried to mutter
                                                                                                                    But my voice melted like butter

In a short time we spent a lifetime
I asked you to be mine                                                                                 because I owed myself this

At the time I was lifeless
You were my lifeline                                                                                    selfless and never selfish

                                                                                      I see you
                                                                                  Eyes sea blue
                                                                With a heart that’s see through
                                                                           Girls want to be you
                                                                               Guys be with you
                                                                           You said “I love you”
                                                                                   ^…well me too^

It’s funny how time changes us
Moving us into different places; turning friends into strangers
We moved from places we were safest into different stages
our talks always ending in anger

                                                       

                                                       Like water in glass on top of a ladder
                                                                                        we fell
                                                                                I shattered
                                                       You burst, dispersed, and splattered
                                                                   Sadder that I once had her
                                                           Now like this verse I lie scattered

                                                   I can’t be fixed but you convalesce                                                                                                                                                         like.it.never.mattered
