Lies In Your Head

Sometimes I wish you'd leave your head
Come back down to earth and join me instead
Help me believe that our love's not dead
You're blowing out our flame with your cold breath
Your alarms are going off from what I said
But those words were never mine, they're in your head
I can't shake off the feeling this is the end
I can't bare to lose you, you're my best friend

I promise you that I'd never lie
I just struggle to express how I feel inside
My only problem is when you say that you're fine
When even the blind can see that that's a lie
I'll be your sun in a cloudy sky
But you can't leave the dark unless you try
Please don't ever say goodbye
I'd say I'd be fine without you, but that's a lie

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Based off of the song Bulow - Sweet Little Lies.  My take on a response from the singer's partner.

The Moon

As much as you cling to the idea

Of being the one who got away,


That ship sailed

When I kissed the girl who was forced to leave.


Because in spite of calamity,

She never denied our love.


And even now,

She stands up to the people who attempted to drown her.


And her strength and honesty

Rival those of Mother Nature herself.


Still, you are significant,

But a single flower pales in comparison to the dynamic sky.


And maybe one day you’ll find another flower

Who will bloom with you in beautiful imperfection.


For me, I will trudge along,

Searching for the moon.

Don't hate me
For wanting
Believe me, you
This is what
I'm going to do
Absorb me
Then let me out
It's all about me
Don't you see
No dogs allowed
We're on my terms
Don't mess with me
I'll watch you burn
Keep in mind
I'm not your
Waste of time
All that said
Continue please
Don't stop now
Just maybe I'll let you lead
