One Plus Three Equals Sixteen



Close your eyes
Take my hand
I have something to show you
Purse your lips
Shake your head
Lifted wide eyes in shock as I pull off your blindfold
Where did everything go?

No, I'm not the one who told you to leave
No, I'm not the one who cried
No, I'm not the one who left you stranded
No, I'm not the one who lied

Are all your boxes packed?
Are all our memories burned?
Are all your promises lost?
Were all our goodbyes screamed from the top of our lungs?

I thought you were the one
I thought you were my only one
I thought you were my love
I thought I was your only love

All you did was trick and deceive
And you wonder why I was always mad
All you did was lie and cheat
And you wonder why I hate you now

I hope I never see you again (Repeat)
Not even when I remeber to forget you ever existed (Repeat)

Eugene Hetler

I love the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit and that goes with Him. I read the Bible and pray daily. I try not to be judgemental but some days the fire comes out like a dragon burping a big gas fire on accident after a big meal. I love to write. Please read waht I write. I love to write things that encourage and hopefully are fun to read and make you laugh til you cry. I even like to write things that inspire and make you think in a deep way some of the time. Whoever's hacking my account and erasing my hard work is cheating me and the people who enjoy my work and it needs to stop or you'll suffer the consequences. :) more…
