Tell me how to hold you
Tell me how to care
Please, confide in me
Your secrets wont you share?
Don't just walk away
I can see the pain in your eyes
Don't say you're okay
Stop feeding me lies
I see the way they treat you
You walk with your head hung low
You're sweating and you're shaking
You think I don't know?
I want to stop the hurting
I want to end your grief
You're not worthless
Trust in my belief
Your smile dazzles in any lighting
You're always gentle with your touch
You're amazing to me
I hope that's not too much
I want to make you happy
I want to make you dance
I want you to live
And this may be my last chance
Sing with me to the heavens
Let's close our eyes with prayer
And when I wake up tomorrow
I really hope you're there
I understand insecurities, the scars i have are real,
i understand issues with trust, i know just how you feel.
I get trust where i can, and seek it where i lack,
i understand to seek it there, even though behind my back.
so do not think that all i do is paint pictures of trust,
remember that i hold you dear, i pray, believe, you must.
Secretly, we lie.
Secretly, we hide information to cover our past.
Secretly, we say we trust.
It just not that much.
Honestly, we say we don't-when we do.
We all can't admit some of us are fools.
Which is true.
Place a camera in our face and you'll find many denials.
Until you hit them with the truth.
Like they say, a picture tells a story more than words could express.
And only then will folks confess.
Privately ,many do.
I used to believe that
Was the way to go
Because trust begets trust
And you'll trust me too
But time again
You hide secrets
And think that I'm a fool
Because I don't say a word
Doesn't mean that I don't know
Enough with treating me like a fool
I know my facts
And that's the truth
sweet, sweet boy
i've seen you a-sittin' there
waiting for that older girl
with those bright eyes
and kind smile.
now southern boy
dont you drop a penny
cause she's a rich girl with class
and yer not gettin' her chastity
and yer not takin' her money
cause yer a proud son of an ass
and broken boy
why you still not takin' no bandages?
cause yer stubbornness is breakin' er
when yer the one who's bleedin'
oh, i can see it all repeatin'
what you dont know is she loves you
and yer in love too
but all this time you been thinking its sympathy
got this idea that you mean nothing to nobody
boy it's hurtin' er
it's hurtin me
cause baby boy
i see you as my own
im a-thinkin' you need to take a stand
she might be a stunner
only one who don take you as a sinner
but youve been forgettin'
that though shes a fine woman
y'always been a real good man
seen you cryin' tears
shes paradin' round
with a polished fella'
but why you aint been askin' her
"whens the weddin'"
when you think its comin'
honey, no girl in love
shows up at some lib'ary
when theres a man who orders sherry
im a-sure you feel
but you don see it
and sure as nothin' do you believe it
waitin', waitin' boy
how long you gon be sittin' there
that girl gave you time
but you didnt use it
and now im crying'
i can tell theres still love
but shes been takin'
and now yer a drunk
lost, lost boy
im a-beggin' here
cause i know its not her fault
and she thinks it was
and now we both afraid
cause you not even tryin' a-hide it
but yer becomin' yer father
and he was filled with hate
hes a gone, gone boy
im a sinner with a prayer
that her husband dies
an he drops the liquor
and they both survive
but, hes an old, old man
i know that you know that i know that you know
it's hard for me to love you
because it's hard for me to trust that you won't leave
your downfall is pride and your head is so big it can't fit through the door
and your brain fills the space encased by your skull
so i know that you know that i know that you know that i know
you're smart enough to know you should be leaving
i wasn't raised to look both ways before crossing the street
and there's a collection of ever sprawling highways outside my window
when i was little my mom used to tell me i came from the mermaids
and sometimes i think about jumping into the ocean and never swimming back up
i hope that you know that i know that you know that i know i've never been good at writing love poetry
and i've never liked Shakespeare but maybe i'm just jealous
he knows over fifty ways to say the words i love you and i can't think of any
that won't leave me vulnerable i'm swallowing sentences dry and i'm choking on the acrid taste
of each syllable trying to come back up i still can't decide if this is worse than being vulnerable.
I looking I your eyes... Their cold and colorless
I don't remember them that way, what changed?
What happened to those eyes full of shimmering stars... What happened to that heart that was once full of warmth... Now your cold and it hurts!
I know you still love me but you suffer!
I wish I can talk to you but the barriers we've put up are way too high! Be cold
My darling but once I'm gone trust me you'll regret everything and you'll cry tears of blood shed... But no matter what I still love you even thou I hardly know you anymore....
A heart that loves you and is true,
a hand to hold that doesn't cling,
someone to talk to all life through,
a friend to trust with everything.
you're a popsicle
and he's the sun"
my little sister said
with a strand of dirty blond
hair wrapped around her finger
she said it with a smirk
and a smile all too wise
your eyes are as fresh as lilies
cut in the morning
with a crimson smile
the way your tender lips
form security and safety
the slope of your hips breeds
respect and trust
the tendons writhing under
your hands are excitement
every inch of your skin
and your crimson-cut eyes
We seem to be living in a perpetual state of fear
the talking heads on the boob tube provide that
to us on a daily bases
what ever happen to the trust in humanity
to love and respect one and other
I guess the new millennium faded with y2k
or is our Lord saying tag your it, lets see what you got
