The Words You Said



All I ever wanted
                              Was to feel the way
                                                                ...your words made me feel…
                                                                                 I want it to be real…
When you touched me
                                      I felt my heart flutter…
I couldn’t speak
                          I could only utter
                                                        ...a stutter
                                                                          But then you would speak
Those words made me melt, so sentimental
                                                                             I felt as though I was someone special
Like I was in the World Series
                                                     Leading with 12 runs to none
Your words said, no matter what, I would be
                                                                             The chosen one…

                                   My stomach is in knots
I’ll put to rest
                       My intuition
                                            And avoid it…
                                                                 I wanted to believe it....
I wanted to wish upon a star
                                                 And if I’m sleeping
                                                                                 Please don’t wake me up…
I want to keep on dreaming
You’d kiss me and it felt unreal
                Why would you want to kiss me?
                                                                       What’s the deal?
I fell in love with an imaginary dream
                                                                  No one has ever wanted me
                                                                                                                 After they see
The inner me ....
                          They can’t handle all of my insecurities

And I feel more insecure
                                   That’s for sure

And then you came along
                                            And the words you said
                                                                                     Filled that empty void
And all I wanted to do was to avoid
                                                             My stomach being in knots
Because all my hope
                                   Was in those words you spoke
But now you laugh
                                 …. about those words
                                                                   As if it were all just a  joke

                       They were only words…..

 You said.
                                                               But Did you know…

                            Those words you spoke….

Was where
                   I placed
                                         ….all of my hope?

My heart broke.

                                    Denial…
                                                        We meet….once again
Face to face

                               You’ve become
                                                         
                                                               My familiar friend….
