Don't tell me I'm pretty Tell me that I'm passionate That I have drive Tell me that I make you laugh That I know how to make your day better Don't tell me I seem nice Tell me that I'm kind and compassionate Tell me that I'm not afraid to dream and to dream big Don't tell me I'm perfect Tell me the you love me despite my flaws That you want to spend the rest of your life with me Don't tell me I'm beautiful Tell me that you'll be faithful and forever true
I'm worried that I'm forgetting your face. I'm worried that I'm focusing too much on things that don't matter, and too little on the things that do. I'm worried that you are fading away because I'm forgetting to let go and live. I'm worried that I am losing memories because I'm too focused on the big picture.
I know that it doesn't really matter.
I know that people slip through the cracks when you are too lazy or too scared to hold on. I want to remember your face. I want to fight to experience the little things. I don't want to let you fade away because I was too scared to let loose. I want to make memories and paint the big picture.
I am so afraid of talking to you Reality let loose by your venomous soft lips is hard to hear The few messages I send have no response The pain that ensues pursuing an answer from you is where my fear resides Besides believing in a miracle to happen Directing my satin sails back to clear waters I do not deserve such a beautiful ending Or do I?!
Wrote this one about two months ago but had it in drafts. I wanted to add more but honestly I think it grabbed that moment so well.
