Softly Break

Folder: 
The Rhythm Of...

I’m not gonna tell you that it’s all gonna be okay
I’m not gonna lie and tell you things don’t need to change
I will not pretend that everything is going great
And every night when I lay down my own heart softly breaks


I spoke to you in songs for you
In riddles made to rhyme
To you I’ve only spoken truth
While you have only lied
I shared with you my humble views
Of everything in time
You took my words and you eschewed
Them to fit your view of life


So I’m not gonna tell you that it’s all gonna be okay
I’m not gonna lie and say that things don’t need to change
I will not pretend that everything is going great
When every word I spill out makes my own heart softly break


I found you in my slumber
Held on to everything
Now it’s your spell I’m under
The lies invade my dreams
My worry shades my cover
As this all falls down on me
I am nothing but another
That you cause such misery


So I’m not gonna tell you that it’s all gonna be okay
I’m not gonna lie and say that things don’t need to change
I will not pretend that everything is going great
In everything I do for you, my own heart softly breaks


So I’m not gonna lie and say that I will be okay
I’m not gonna tell you that my life won’t need a change
I will not pretend for you that I am doing great
When everything I see in life makes my heart softly break


You took my heart and held it in your grip
Told me that I needed more, some reason just to live
Took me off the edge before I fell off of that cliff
Then watched my heart softly break while you just laughed at it


So I’m not gonna tell you that it’s all gonna be okay
I’m not gonna lie and say that things don’t need to change
I will not pretend that everything is going great
In everything I do for you, my own heart softly breaks

...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

Life is change. Problem is,

Life is change. Problem is, growth is optional, and most times people give it  'no thank you'. It's time for THAT to change.
