Maybe That’s Okay

I remember the day you told me I wasn’t allowed to place my happiness On a person like you I remember how you didn’t understand That I was telling you I loved you, Or maybe you did. I remember that’s how it always is Your wall My knock You turning your back. Maybe I said…

5 Years From Now

They tell me I have commitment issues That not making a choice, is still making a choice to let others choose for you They ask me what I want to be doing in 5 years time And I tell them I do not know. I am afraid of starting over I am afraid of starting…

Maybe

Maybe there are days That I am more remember Than I am forgive
