I rebuttal

We were driving along
a dark windy road
when all of the
sudden
she said to me
“I don’t like this road
I can never see
what’s behind me”

“Why would you want to?”
I rebuttal
“You will see the headlights
behind you
and the taillights
in front of you
and if you see nothing
you are
alone”

Her face crumpled as
she turned her head
She remained silent
for a while
until her hand slowly guided
towards mine
“As if I would find
comfort in being
alone”

I am not bitchy all the time
sometimes I'm bright and gay
I am not always feeling down
at least not every day

Sometimes I wear a great big smile
sometimes I have a frown
sometimes I'm feeling really good
sometimes I'm really down

So if you see my smiling face
approach me if you dare
but piss me off and you will watch
as I yank off half your hair

I'll hit you like a big buzz saw
I'll chew and spit you out
so don't approach on my bad days
days when I sit and pout

I'll have to work on a happy version of this.
my rebuttal, I want to explain

discussing and listening
"maybe next time, honey"

my rebuttal, I want to explain
that weeks turn to months
"no luck, no child of mine"

but instead, I reply
"it's okay, I'm not married anyway"

I'll spit out a rebuttal
Autumn Ann

Change my mind a trillion times
You'll never shake me

Try to kick me while I'm down
I'll rise instead

Choke me with your words
I'll spit out a rebuttal

Throw yourself in this fight
You'll never come out alive

chronic rebuttal and no

It's as easy as life, this
chronic rebuttal and no
matter how right you are
you're always wrong placing
bets with your own bookie

It's as easy as life, but
who's to say life is easy?
certainly not those who have left
and gone on to bigger things; they'd
like to believe in all this in retrospect
but things should be simpler.

It's as easy
as easy as life


guessing is not easy.

Your honest heart’s rebuttal or

Please do not mind my madness; it comes and goes in fits
With little thought of kindness to my hurried, slurring wit.
But if I said 'I love you,' in formulaic prose and posed
Simple answered questions: yes, or no
Moaned silent in the night on lips ruby, cheeks white,
And meter tight; would you return in grace
Your honest heart’s rebuttal or
A gilded, stoney face.

Lies, lies and lies again
From “No I swear, that wasn’t me” to you saying “She’s just a friend”
Your stupid story telling now begins
In my own eyes, your unfaithfulness I can no longer defend

From “No I swear, that wasn’t me” to you saying “She’s just a friend”
I find myself contemplating your game
In my own eyes, your unfaithfulness I can no longer defend
To love you again, I’d fall greatly to shame

I find myself contemplating your game
From mine to yours, words become babble
To love you again, I’d fall greatly to shame
In denial, leaves a sleepless night filled with rebuttal

From mine to yours, words become babble
An endless love, I refuse to begin
In denial, leaves a sleepless night filled with rebuttal
Lies, lies and lies again.

You had the best intentions
But you caged me in text and the jailer was your insecurity
Every minute of the day you kept me in my desperate state I lashed out trying to find a escape but my rebuttal was to drastic and I ended our embrace and left my self empty so I told my self I can't reach that far ,you can't change her mind because its impossible

The crimson walls rebuttal
Juliesen Night

It's beats, Alive.
Even behind closed eyes.
It's made for love,
A life foretold.

Beware your heart,
For it beats so subtle.
The crimson walls rebuttal

Love foretold,
You are to not be alone.
For your love,
Your world.
Has come to your soul.

Beware your heart beat,
For it tells who you love.
The heart, The mind.
It's all precious,
Like the dove.

A valentine poem of remorse and love behold.

Lemme just say this,
before you go and take the piss.
I have feelings too,
some of which you never knew.
Words hit me just as hard,
although I react to them like a bard.
Quick on my feet with a rebuttal,
Although I have a knack of not being subtle.
I'm sorry for when I'm so cruel,
my words poor out like drool.
So why can't we both love, laugh and be calm,
because you are truly the best mom.

For my mother.
