Thoughts in the shape of words.

I Should Never Have Treated You So

How can
I try
To answer for
Right now
All of those things I said

Just happened
To be
A little too
Set free
When I came ’round that day

Hear my lone confession
Now that I’m-a feeling blue
Sometimes I think back at those times
When our love were true

When you heard me speak
I was too weak
I’ve got to change you know
From this new kind of low
I should never have treated you so

No, it was not
The time
For speaking my
Mind
With not a nice word to lend

You know
Even though
I never wanted you
To go
Every story must end

In my lone confession
In every single word
There falls a shroud of silence
Where echoes once were heard

When you heard me speak
I was too weak
I hope that you can forgive me
I can’t let it go
I should never have treated you so

6 Months

6 months

That’s how long it took

For us to meet again

6 months

A brief flash of time

Or an eternity spent insane

I can’t blame thee

The shame lies on me

For living up ‘n’ down

For not being around

But I hope we’re okay

Despite all of those days

That I was on the run

For 6 months

6 months

There ain’t no way to tell

How I’ve withered away

6 months

I never ment to be cruel

I’m just a fool so afraid

I can’t blame thee

The shame lies on me

For living up ‘n’ down

For not being around

But I hope we’re okay

Despite all of those days

That I was on the run

For 6 months

6 months

A continual trip away

From the cold reality

6 months

Without  a single clue

Facing my own mortality

I just blame me

For tryin’ t’ be free

Yes, living up ‘n’ down

A fool downtown

But I hope we’re okay

Despite all of those days

That I was on the run

For 6 months
