Blind To The Truth

I don’t want to talk about it anymore

No more need to debate

You have made up your mind

But so have I

You’ve been more than distant

And I’ve tried over and over again

To somehow reach you

With no luck

You believe you are not an alcoholic

But I see so many of the signs you miss

How much you drink

How often you drink

And your inability to stop

You say you just like the taste of it

But it is so much more

No I don’t want to replay this scene anymore

Tonight I walk out that door

Impossible Dream

She was in love with him

Had been for years

But she knew she didn’t have a chance

It was a hopelessly impossible love

Sometimes late at night though

He would text her and “talk” for hours

He was miles away though

And now he found someone else

She was happy for him, truly

But she still had dreams at night

Of being in his arms held tight

And he grabs her face oh so gently

He kisses her for the first time

It is everything she thought it would be

But morning always comes

With a new day without him

And she still silently hopes

Someday it could be her with him

A Rolling Stone Gathers No Moss

He was sitting alone

But he was flirting

With the lady at the bar

He wanted her tonight

And did everything he could

To entice the woman

And get an invite

Back to her apartment

He would be a whirlwind

In one late night

Then gone in the morning

He had already been

In this town too long

He was itchy to move

Get to the next town

And see what it would offer

He wanted no strings

No roots

No commitment of any kind

A free spirit

With no responsibilities

Just a memory in the wind

Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained

I am afraid

of being hurt again,

and so I wonder

should romance begin?

He makes me smile

and feel alright,

from the early morning

until late at night.

So, I guess I need

to take this love train,

because I’ve learned

nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Birds Of A Feather Flock Together

They were the best of friends

The “fantastic four” was always together

They were so much alike

They shared long marriages

They all loved to craft

They had all gone to small schools

And they all had two children

This meeting was so like the others

Joining each other for dinner

They shared a large pizza

One they all loved

And they talked for hours

I guess what they say is true

Birds of a feather flock together

Let Bygones Be Bygones

Let troubles of the past

Fall by the wayside

Forgive those who caused pain

Because holding onto it

Will only keep it fresh

And on your mind

Bring peace back to your life

Just let bygones be bygones

Strength And Weakness

He was pushing my buttons

Trying to get a response

But I so far have kept my cool

He is trying to bait me

Direct me down the path he wants

But I will go my own way

He will not win by luring me

To a place that is to his advantage

But I am tempted to follow

He is trying to seduce me

With all the tricks in the book

But I will not be sucked in

He is giving up with an audible sigh

Not knowing what could allure me

But if he only knew how weak I was finally feeling…
