violets are blue
my feet stink
and so do you
people are shallow
what can you do
you betrayed me twice
and now we're through
She asked…how does he decline?
Gerald has spent weeks convincing himself that he wants a prom date. He alters his decision almost every other day and decided to compose a list of pros and cons of having a date. The cons outweighed the pros, but he is still in doubt. Two weeks ago Leslie, the pigeon-toed tomboy, asked Gerald to prom. He plainly stated, “Uh, I’m not sure if I’m going…I’ll uh…let you know.” Leslie prances around school with hopes of attending prom with Gerald who is uninterested. Gerald is delaying his response with considerate intentions that keep him up at night thinking of how to decline Leslie’s offer. He is still unsure of how to approach her…
Once upon a time I beat with a purpose and a fellow pulse beat with me in a lyrical rhythm.
Once I felt a warmth that shared my warmth.
They say that everything comes in twos, but hearts come in singles so that we can find the other heart in our pair. So why when I found the other piece of my pair did it go away? Had we been wrong about him, you and I? I believed I had found my other half, didn't you? Did you really believe? Did you hear me when I told you that he was the one?
I guess not, because you got rid of him. Sure, he won't be a part of us now and that's his choice. But, wasn't it the fear you brought him that keeps his beating heart from me? Aren't you the reason I beat alone night after night? Maybe one day he'll come back and we won't feel so alone and don't sit here and tell me that you don't feel alone, I can tell that you do. You should have listened to me. I never lied to you. Anytime he was around I picked up volume and tempo, anytime he walked away I screamed in agony for him to come back.
I wish you had heard me... As much as you wish you did too.
