I couldn't go today,

I couldn't go today,
I couldn't see her face,
I couldn't say the words,
I just couldn't, today.

I couldn't feel the pain,
I couldn't open up old wounds,
I couldn't deal with it,
I just couldn't, today.

I couldn't pour my soul out,
I couldn't cry for a stranger,
I couldn't handle it,
I just couldn't, today.

Couldn't you spare a glance?

Couldn't you spare a glance?
Couldn't you spare a smile?
Couldn't you spare a hey?
Couldn't you spare an indicator that you acknowledge my existence?

He couldn’t love her.
She was too dark.
Her insides were too twisted
and her brain was too sick.
Her bones weren’t sharp enough
and her soul was out of shape.
Her eyes were tired and blurry.
He couldn’t love that.
She couldn’t let him
love the Devil.

I couldn't fix you,
I couldn't heal you,
Truth is,
I probably should have never tried

I couldn't call it love.

Baby, loving you is moving mountains
Loving you is ending skies
If I didn't love you anywise,
I couldn't call it love.

Baby, loving you is crying silence
Loving you is burning rain
If I wouldn't love you all the same,
I couldn't call it love.

then couldn't everyone do it?

If poetry is just words
that already existed before,
then couldn't everyone do it?

If running is just moving
and most every person has arms to pump
couldn't everyone do it?

If art is just the colors of the rainbow
put on paper with a crayon,
couldn't everyone do it?

If cooking is just food
being put in a pan or oven,
couldn't everyone do it?

And if life is just living
and breathing everyday,
couldn't everyone do it?

My answer: No

Your answer: I don't know

He couldn't understand
The loss of his land
Reaching and stealing
From those that stood caring
He couldn't understand
Why she wore black
For the elderly and the children
All the abused men
And all the abused women
He couldn't understand
The strength that hid
From the backs of his hand
The strength that hit
That made her stand...

I couldn't keep myself away
Fucking tired

I couldn't keep myself away
couldn't keep myself from kissing you
your arm draped over me
just made my mind go numb
couldn't think about anything
but your heart beat
your breathing
how warm and inviting your mouth would be
if I kissed you again
couldn't think
couldn't tell myself no
I just leaned over
and started kissing you
realized what I was doing
but still couldn't stop
because your kiss was what I needed
your lips over mine
the way your tongue slipped perfectly in-between my teeth
how you put so much into a single touch of lips
and I couldn't pull away

more old shit. i got a lot more ugg
i couldn't imagine that every

you used to lie
i used to smile
i couldn't imagine that every
second minute hour i spened it with you
was a big lie
i used to believe it
but ; but never again
don't think that i need you
that i want you or love you
no you're wrong
i couldn't imagine
that fake love controles me
i couldn't imagine
i was your victim
but ; but never again
because i'm free now
you'll never bring me down .

Couldn't go without you.

Couldn't go without you.
But, the more you wanted,
the less I had to give.
Couldn't have gone on without you.
One minute you were there, refusing to leave.
Couldn't go on without me, and then I blinked
and our time has ended.

You have moved on, and I had to let go or drowned in the pain.
A pain so fierce I couldn't go on breathing.
And the path you sped down head long, was blocked to me.
Couldn't go forward and follow after you.
The path grew over instantly, and even now as I look back,
I'm not sure what direction you took, you are long gone.
And, I couldn't go.....
