Showcase Your Affection

Bring forth your heart and lay it down in front of me

Show me charades of promises and tell me of dreams you have planned

Waltz around and parade your undying affection

While I read between the lines and see beyond the colors

Your mardis gras of facade I see right through

See, the grand gesture and parade is not what I want

The simplicity, the truth, was what I was after

And those two, you failed hard at

Ice Queen

She looks all sweet and kind

And though she may not read minds

She can tell the wrong sort

Even before they start to court.

They wonder why she’s single

Wonder why she wouldn’t mingle

They think of her as a mystery

And ask themselves if she’s in misery.

She’s calm unless provoked

She’s tough as nails when your feelings for her she’ll revoke

She won’t think twice to tell you otherwise

Boy, she will be your demise.

You can wait for as long as you want

Hoping you’ll change her mind, but you know you can’t

When she says “no”, that’s the final word

See, she battles dragons herself and doesn’t need you sword.

Fall Once

I tried to please him

Tried to be the one so he would stop searching

But I wasn’t what he was looking for

So he moved past me.

I guess I tried too hard

I guess I just wasn’t the right fit

I look back now and though I may not understand as much

I don’t regret having fallen for him once

No Love

They judge me

They tell me I’ve never truly felt love

Or been in love
But how would they know?

The dim witted often think they’re smart

They will never understand 

And I won’t care

Because I know,

Heartbreak is all I’ve ever had

About Being Single

Every single day they tell me

Tease me

And sometimes it hurts me

Because a single word can be hurtful 

When every single time you are told

As if you do not feel a single emotion 

As if you are not smart enough to understand 

Because they think being single is a disappointment 

When truth is, their single mindedness 

Is the real problem

Half Meant

Didn’t he know that when I said we should be for each other 

It was not just a joke?

Half of it was hoping

Most of it was true
And didn’t he know my feelings weren’t a lie?

Couldn’t he see?

It was all half meant

He Gave Me Up

I told myself it never was

Told myself he never did

Gave up hope and my feelings for him altogether

Thinking, he and I were not meant once or forever.
I told myself I was the only one who fell

The only one who felt it

But circumstances reveal something else entirely 

He loved me after all, wholeheartedly.
And circumstances became the reason why

He had to give me up and say goodbye

You Can’t Force Love

You can’t impose it

Or simply dispose of it

You can’t wish for it to happen

Or force it

It happens when it does and it’s a great thing when it comes your way

But how can I put this simply

In words easily understood?

Don’t force me, because if I don’t like it

I never will
