If Only You Knew

If you love me

in the way that you do

must I love you.

Can I just be me?

Allow things to just be.

I think you have some damage

and I do too.

I want to see flowers open up naturally

I want to feel gladness

but I don’t think that’s what you want from me.

I feel sadness

but you have overwritten me.

I feel weakness.

So I guess it’s just going to be me.

        1. How’s this, and if it’s too melancholy I can go all Janet Jackson on you.

          I thought it would happen
          I thought it would
          but things don’t always turn out the way you think that they should….

          Your turn now, or feel free to take a fresh start.

  1. Realization can be a cruel learning place. These are great lines, Harlon:
