Iverson Taylor Smith 2004 (Oregon)
She lives in her own mind
She’s loved to the point of obsession
The feeling of loneliness turns to aggression.
I’ve got a question?
Do you care about your impression?
Have your feelings turned to suppression?
This is your life, you make of what you are.
Not by your profession.
Why have we cried, of heartbreak
All of those nights you stayed awake.
Because someone’s feelings of love turned to be fake.
The pain turns to aches.
Your minds at the ends of a break.
Isn’t it crazy that love has so much power.
As it ends, freedom almost feels like jailbreak.
Loving again, becomes overbearing.
Your thoughts of self becomes cuts.
Am I too much?
When all you ever wanted was love by touch.
Your hearts been broken in two.
But loving that sweet soul feels brand new.
So I say with few words.
Reflect on how much you grew.
Get through the pain, because you are not to be put to blame
For how you loved is who you are.
And for those who took your love and burnt it crisp like a cigar.
Remember the feeling of how bizarre love can be.
When someone looks into your eyes.
With the pure power of the star, that you truly are.
