i do not surrender

when you tell me that you feel me sliding down by your side

I do not surrender, that’s me accepting that this is you.

I’m sliding away, head first crashing into the waves.

See the only way to be free of you, is by being free from this vessel.

Shame is my body that lay with you, pretending I wasn’t hurting

when I was throbbing inside.

When you tell me that you feel me sliding down by your side

that’s you pushing my head firm against the ocean

and that’s my soul letting go.

she says

 

Lenny Kravitz- The Difference Is Why

She says she wants to be a lover but she has no fear

she says she wants to be an inspiration but knows nowhere

she says she wants to love but can’t breathe anymore

she says she hates the way she smiles because her eyes crinkle

she says she can’t have what she wants because she doesn’t deserve

she says that her hopes and dreams are never at ease

she says she wants to believe and respire but she can’t

she doesn’t love herself enough

she doesn’t give herself enough

she doesn’t feed her soul

it cries like a banshee

tearing her monotonous face

hoping and dreaming and pleading everyday

but she gets none of it

she says where am I going wrong?
