Changes

Look at me and tell me that you still know me
different cities 

different people

my people were your people

what happened to forever ?

I used to act like a little kid being told that toys r us was our next stop

big grin

“don’t show too much”

But it all switched up,
they don’t want us to see this through

i say let’s be the odd ones out

you know i got you and you got me right?

Never really dawned on me that forever was never and it was all just now 

enjoyed it 

mishandled the feeling

stirred it up created a BIG storm 

i got caught up by it 

i found you. 

In search of a rainbow and well you was just in search of a “quick fix” you know the ones you find because its convenient. 

For years i’ve had my own back

you stripped me naked to the point were 

i could see my own pain,

my own disaster 

my own storm was taking its turn on me. 

Can i call you my storm?

not thinking about the outcome 

not thinking about what’s going to happen after 

blinded by the nice gestures

forgetting that times and people do change. 

Letting go isn’t easy 

so caught up in the memory that we forget the reality,

two wrongs don’t make a right do they? 

Maybe i got my calculations wrong. 

Add one subtract two 

we’re doomed from the start. 

Leave your ego at the door

come as you are

maybe i can see through you and you can tell me who you are 

can’t let the old you die because that’s all i know

can’t replace you because you’re the only wrong i know. 

so tell me how can i let this go ? 

We take separate roads 

not knowing where we’ll go 

you go left i go right

hoping to meet again 

hoping life does its thing and connects us again

maybe this time we won’t subtract too much and maybe learn how to add 

you’re still my storm 

i calm you down just to see the rainbow. 

You go left i go right

but we still end up on the same finishing line.

    It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while
    that isn’t the same unwanted rehashed information. Fantastic
