  • Mood:

the man I could have loved

the bet
is set
that I might forget
I ever could love
just one guy
one guy
who passed me by
in circles
that never
would cross


and I remember you
standing there, we were
two
of hundreds
why couldn't we be
remotely
similar?


and dif you mind
and def you mind
my saying so
my splaying so
openly my heart for you
so corny, I know
but continually true
in word, sound and
mind, listening to what
you're wondering
not quite
aloud
not quite
allowed
to know
what it feels like to be
lonely
afraid but not of
anything more

than the life unlived
the line unrhymed
in time
so divine
I hope you find
that peace of mind
piece of mind
that lets you
know
that you're so
awesome
I can barely
breathe
think
wink

at you, for you
cheer up, Charlie
give us a smile
bring back that sunshine
I used to know


-solemn grace
solemn face
eyes tuned into
the beyond of
a box we only
treat as
metaphorical

>but you know
and I know
that box is so
constraining
at times I'm
complaining
of pains I don't
even have
that you have
that we have
apart and
together
like the rest of
the world
a lonely place, no?
Yes,
but we can change
rearrange
what so little we've done
so much we've done
gotta tell you, hun (or man?)
you're the one I could have
loved


all for the man
