If she believed everything You say Then she would think She were your life That she can Take your breath away From you. If she listened closely Which she doesn't She would think You never loved anyone Like you love her. So why Do you make her cry?
I Didn’t Hear That
The voices in my head say one thing What comes out of my mouth is another. I've never had the ability to discern the truth Wouldn't ever come from my mother. A little tear in a dress Does it mean you'll never wear it? Jeans that used to slide right on Now no longer fit.... Continue Reading →
