Anything But Me

11 Oct

Would you sing a song for me?
Guitar in your hands
your head on my chest
words in your mouth
but never the ones
I need to hear.

Would you write lyrics for me,
like poetry?

Your voice in my ear
breath on my cheek
singing songs about
but me.

(c) 2008.

    Lovely write though I have mixed emotions. Why not about you? :)

      At the time, I was going through a long, drawn-out breakup with my ex-fiancé. He was cheating on me, but out of stupidity or desperation I stayed with him. I became convinced that everything he said was a lie; and that every word he spoke was about the girl he was cheating with. Thank you.

        I can relate to that and still have bad dreams from time to time. The challenge now is to dream of good ones. Huggggs :)

    Hugs back :) I’m now in an amazing relationship with someone I love dearly and who treats me like a princess, so good things come to those who wait. Never give up hope.
