    i already told you
    i'm not much
    for a bunch
    of company
    i don't need
    nobody to lay up wit me
    daily
    i just thought you were interesting
    somebody worth knowing
    it was never about clinging
    i've been really, really
    thinking
    about how you try to make yourself unlikeable
    and do retarded ****
    surround yourself with people
    their presence makes it
    easy to be at home
    i already know
    it's unthinkable
    for you to take a chance
    on being home alone
    for 2 many days
    in a row
    i don't think
    you're willing to wait around and see
    if anyone without motives would actually
    choose 2 be
    in your vacinity
    i know that way down deep inside
    you don't really believe
    that one single person sees
    the tears you've cried
    in your private time
    and i know you wonder if you shine
    from the inside
    so that even people
    who look at you with plain old eyes
    can see
    you don't believe
    that anybody's staying
    so rather than waiting
    to find out
    you do something mean
    to push them away
    get them gone
    beyond
    any shadow of a doubt
    you give every excuse
    for a person to drop out
    and leave
    but how long do you wanna be
    suspended between
    hoping and knowing
    wishing and having
    this is truly not to dis
    but you said, "It's all about love..."
    these days
    I say, "Fall in love with you."
    first boo
    sure it seems
    abstract
    but really stop and think
    about what it means
    no games
    no attachment to gains
    no strategies
    no tangible thing
    to be able to blame
    on bad days
    a surrendered situation
    of total give
    where faith completes the equation
    and the only requirement is to truly live
    baby, I'm not your agent
    nor some needy relative or friend
    I pump dreams
    so i'll never be a groupie
    sucking at your time
    like a fiend
    i'm not your financial advisor
    i'm really not that much older
    or wiser
    i would really love to be able to
    hand you
    a simple title or category to put me in
    and make it okay to be around me yet
    i'm just somebody you met
    somebody who wishes she could forget
    that
    you made me laugh
    and now I have the sense
    that if I refer to you in the past tense
    it won't seem like such a waste
    this unconscionable failure to communicate
    and it wouldn't seem like the work of the devil
    if it wasn't ****ed up on so many levels
    because I wasn't looking
    and I wasn't searching
    but still I somehow find myself
    six months later in love and hurting
