On Words I Thought You Meant

August 2016

Should have heard it when we would speak,

you're not as strong as you let on, you're weak,

you're much colder then you first show, i'll keep warm,

and leave you outside while i close the door.


I thought you nothing but sincere and kind,

those are just lies i needed time to find,

well time has flown by and i know the truth,

i can't function properly without you.


It'll only grow worse as i get older,

i just wish i could do it over,

take back all that wasted time spent

on words i thought you meant.


I walk to the beat of my own drum,

even when you leave me breathless and numb,

too devastated to hear you speak,

losing track of hours and weeks.
