“Someday”

Someday,
I will meet a guy who buys me flowers,
and stays for hours.

One who will take me out on a date,
and never be late.

One that doesn’t want me to cover up,
with make up.

One who will think I’m a princess,
even when I’m a hot mess.

Basically,
just someone that walks into my life and makes me realize,
why it didn’t work out with anyone else.

Yes,

I hope that guy comes around.

Someday.

“Forbidden” (His Version)

I looked out my window today,
at the grass in which we used to lay.

Loving her is risky.

If her daddy found out,
he’d probably have a shot of whiskey.

Because of this,
I have another girl,
but she’s not the one that makes my stomach twirl.

I don’t know what it is about her.

Her laugh,
my day is made.

Her eyes,
I feel her soul.

Her smile.
I swear my world stops.

Her innocence,
I want to hold her in my arms forever.

Loving her is risky.

Why must our love be forbidden?

“Wrong”

It was nice to see you last night,
but it just didn’t feel right.

After you left,
I stood in the shower
for an hour.

I fell to the floor,
I felt so sore.

I felt disgusting.

I felt humiliated.

Once again,
everything felt so fake

I did everything for our friendship’s sake.

But you don’t even know if you want that
from me anymore.

Why do we keep doing this.

It is so wrong.

“The Girls I Don’t Like”

There are three girls I don’t like.

The one you like.
The one who likes you.
And the one you are always hanging out with.

Why?

Because for one hot second,
each of these girls held on to what used to be my world.

You ask me if I want to meet her,
the answer will always be no.

I’m sorry,
but these are the girls I just don’t like.

“Distance”

Distance to me,
means so little,
when you mean so much.

But you’re there,
and I still feel you here.

I feel you in my heart,
it’s so hard for me to believe we are apart.

Your words,
still play like a song in my head.

Your scent,
is still in my dreams.

Your touch,
still lingers on my skin.

I love you,
no matter what I say or do.

You say I should be strong,
I wish I didn’t have to wait so long.

“My Life Next Door”

I looked out my window today.

His blinds were closed,
and his lights were on.

I sighed.

No I didn’t cry.

But I wondered,
was he thinking about me
like I was thinking about him?

It’s unbearable.
I close my blinds as well.

He can be with her,
he can’t ever be with me anyway.

I will be okay.
Just not today.
Or tomorrow.
Or the next day.

After all,

he was always my life next door.

“Putting You In A Poem”

Putting you in a poem,
isn’t easy.

You must be flattered.
but all I understand is that my heart is shattered.

Here’s to you.

I write and erase,
I erase those memories out of my head.

I write and cross out,
I cross out the things I wish didn’t happen.

I write and use white out.
I use white out on everything I pray you would undo.

Suddenly I’m back to where I started.

A blank piece of paper,
and a blank heart.

You see,
putting you in a poem isn’t easy.

So next time you read something that makes you feel flattered,
understand that to me it actually mattered.

“Home Is Where You Are”

They said I should move,

but I can’t.

This is home.

Home is where you are.

Home is where we first kissed on my front porch.

Home is where we secretly met up by the lake.

Home is the grass we lay on as we gazed into each other’s eyes.

Home is your silhouette in the window, before you shut off the lights.

Home is where I stare out into the stars hoping you’re thinking of me like I’m thinking of you.

They just don’t get it do they?

Home is where you are.

“Nothing”

You say it meant nothing.
You want me to say the same.

Fine I will.

The kiss on my neck,
that left me in a wreck,
it meant nothing.

Pushing away my hair,
as you embraced me on my chair,
it meant nothing.

The way you would glare,
as you saw me bare,
it meant nothing.

Fulfilling all your temptations,
that would relieve your frustrations,
it meant nothing.

Seeing you in public the next day,
all for you to just look away,
wow I guess it really did mean nothing.

“Every Girl”

The way he held me,
he holds every girl like that.

The way he talked to me,
he smooth talks every girl like that.

The way he comforted me,
he comforts every girl like that.

But he said I wasn’t like every other girl,
I guess he said that to every other girl.
