The Holler

Standard

We were not
We were never
I knocked
I chased
You were not
Not amazed
You knocked
You chased
Only after I’ve moved
Into another space

The Breakthrough

Standard

Break up
Break through
One dot
By no means a full stop
Break up
Break free
If his grip had never loosened
How would you have ever hopped

The Capsule

Standard

Bury it
Bury it somewhere
Somewhere so deep
Somewhere so remote
It’ll be beyond my memory
Sink it
Sink it to nowhere
A place faraway
A place no one cares
Leave it to time to capture all its dismay

The Song for You

Standard

I wrote you a song
To tell you to leave
I wrote you a song
So you have this song
Even if you don’t have me
I wrote you a song
To keep you company
A song about self love
A song about positivity
But I wanted you to stay near
But I just wanted you near
I secretly hope you stay near
I secretly wish you stay with me

The Fool

Standard

I’m sorry I miss you
Days and nights
Here, there, everywhere
I miss you
I really do
What’s on your mind
What have you been up to
Yes, you have your life
No, I won’t interrupt
But I’m really sorry
I truly miss you, like a fool

The Hourglass II

Standard

Which flow in my hourglass
Not sand, but tears
Which remains in my hourglass
After I turn and turn it more
Not tears, but pieces of my heart
Those who told me time is the best medicine
Have never loved such a love before
