I am not over it,
They say I am,
If anyone can I can,
They say I need to stop sitting,
And start seeing those around me,
But before the next heartbreak,
Gonna learn from my last mistake,
Cause I'm on the ground,
Where he left me,
And before the next one comes around,
Trying to get me to my feet to stand me upon this ground.

I would like you to call me,
I want to hear your voice,
Your name on my lips,
Your laughter in my ear,
So call me,
Don't be afraid,
I aren't going nowhere.
Mary-Joy Feb 22
It's like water rushing over me,
Trying to drown me,
It's an impossible feeling,
Release me,
This cool feeling has got me reeling,
Sinking towards the bottom where I can't even scream.

Every interaction has the choice,
To go forward or to go backward,
Every smile can be taken lightly,
Or can be smiled back too,
Every word can be taken the way it was written,
Or can be taken out of context,
Everything has the possibility to get out of control,
Everything discussion has its consequences,
Every action has its own effects,
But just don't block me yet,
It's not my intention to reject,
It was not my intention to do this,
I wish we could erase the conversation start back at the start,
Don't need another number to add to my fails,
Don't need another blocked name on my list,
Don't need another contact I don't contact,
Don't want to end in a block,
But it might.

I want your name on my lips but I don't say it,
I want your voice in my ear,
And your text across my screen,
When we walk down the street we make quite a scene,
Everyday I want to say that I love you.
Mary-Joy Feb 1
I expect something of you,
Surely there is something you could do,
Erase all my self doubt,
Just put all your feelings out,
And shout,
But no,
You would rather not,
Sitting outside when it's too hot,
You'll fry,
You would rather cook then try,
That's my only expectation of you,
That you move about and we figure all this out.

I want to get familiar,
So talk to me freely,
Walk beside me so eagerly,
I want to be familiar,
You and me,
Dancing in a day dream,
Fighting of horses in my nightmare,
I don't care,
Just let's get familiar,
Your kiss to my neck,
Hearts so close to each other,
Beating for one another,
So let's get familiar,
Take my hand and let's go.

I gave my last breath,
Whirling through a galaxy,
You didn't hear me protest cause I gave my best,
Just to see the galaxy.

You use to wake before me,
Waking me with a text or call,
Since you left me I'm getting use to it,
Waking up on my own,
Staring at an empty phone.
Mary-Joy Feb 1
We are here again,
The very place we left again,
We protested but we don't protest we met again,
So here we are again,
We could reminisce all over again.

He wore jeans,
The most bluest ones you've ever seen,
He is a jeanius,
He was so smart,
He could have you with one touch,
Or a beat of his heart,
His eyes were swimming,
His brain much the same,
With thoughts of how he can change up the game,
Grant me three wishes,
Oh jeanius one,
And out he comes shirtless,
But of course wearing jeans,
He wants you to choose him,
And he'll make you weak at the knees,
He will await your reply,
He wants you to give your wishes away,
And run of with him today,
Cause he is a jeanius who lives in a lamp,
Come and join him,
And take up a romantic dance.

Look in his eyes,
They are blue like the sky,
His skin as white as a cloud,
He speaks so aloud,
He has a grin,
And he can be a tease,
And he does what he pleases,
Look in his eyes,
He's drawing you in,
He reaches to touch your skin,
His eyes speak,
But his mouth doesn't move,
So look in his eyes,
And see his slight smile,
Sit and stay with him like this for awhile.

Loved to be left
There I was again loving,
To be left behind,
There I was trying,
While they were trying to not to be mine,
I loved to be left,
As they moved forwards without me.

You could tell she was trying hard,
Which girl doesn't try to mould their own skin to fit in?
You could tell she was trying to impress,
But as someone who knew better, I should have told her to rest,
But she was trying to hard to make it,
She was going all the way to fake it,
And I could tell,
She wore the sheepish smile,
But I knew this act so well,
She was like me,
I am like her,
She was a miss that just didn't fit,
No matter her effort,
She wasn't going to fit,
Cause neither did I,
And as I watched her try I knew why I gave up,
Cause I was a misfit and I had it tough.

Modern Day

It is a modern day,

A kind of different age,

Things pass us by,

We give up, don't try,

Its the modern way.

The teacups are out,
The biscuit jar is open,
The trolley is full to push down the hallway,
Into the lounge room,
To sit together and spend some time,
I really liked my Nanna's kitchen,
Reminds me of them happy times.
Mary-Joy Feb 25
A place of love and laughter,
Of smells of food,
And tummies full,
With delicious pasta meals,
Memories that feel so distant,
I really wish I was back in Nonna's kitchen.

Oodle doodle don't be a poodle,

Oodle doodle I'll put you in a strudel,

Ooddle doodle your on my mind,

My pen is tracing your ****** lines,

And you are so divine,

Oddle doodle like rhythm and rhyme,

The beat matches the tempo,

At which you slide.

If racism were a marathon,
I wouldn't be prepared for it,
The incline of hate,
And the decline of understanding,
And admit I can't outrun racism,
I won't even try it,
Cause if it is you vs me I'll fall,
Cause if is me vs you, you'll stand taller,
But if I can reunite a few,
Who have experienced racism too,
And tell them no hate is hate,
Don't need to fight or debate,
We can try to win this race,
As a team that has faced,
The hate of another human being,
They bullied us for our skin,
They bullied us because we don't fit in,
They bullied us and told us no,
But this time it's time for hate to go,
So no I can't outrun racism,
But I can try and take the lead,
Show this world a much better inclusive humanity,
Do you want to join this team?

If you pass me in the street you won't know me,
That is past me,
Since you left me I'm a better version of me without you,
We walk pass like two strangers,
Memories could haunt us,
Silence unspoken as I remember you,
And I did love you.
Mary-Joy Feb 1
Take it,
My heart,
My hand,
I'm reaching for you,
Lie to me tell me you haven't reached for me,
Cause I reach for you,
Take it,
My heart never give it back,
My hand and never let it go,
Cause my eyes slides shut,
And it's the only time I see you,
When tears slide down my cheeks,
And I reach for you,
Now please reach for me.

I caught the infection,
Didn't think I could,
Suppose rejection isn't something to be taken lightly,
I suppose an infection of rejection needs a cure,
And I feel that way for sure,
I don't like to feel rejected,
On the sidelines of what's happening around me,
It feels like nobody wants to know me,
It feels like I am able to spread my infection to those who surround me,
But I do not want to reject anyone else,
I know how it feels within myself,
I want to be included,
I want to be invited,
Sick and sad of hiding away,
Rejection is an infection,
The only cure is acceptance and inclusion, its never too help someone feel included today.

Deep, deep in blue water,
He told her, he loved her,
He swam many oceans,
And he had found her,
He sealed the deal with a wet sloppy kiss,
And the swam many oceans in search of fish.

I wish I could open my eyes like I could open the curtains,
Let sunlight stream in,
Let my mind sing,
I wish I could step out and take what you put down,
You have some much to offer,
In this little town,
So I'll climb out of bed today,
And see things in new lights and new ways,
And not be the one behind the shadows,
This time,
Meet up with rhythm,
Talk to rhyme,
Choose exactly the right time,
To step out and take what you put down,
I have so much to offer,
So come now also,
And step out and take what I put down.

I don't know what to do in times of crises,
I couldn't hold a hose for the raging bushfire,
I am not in a lab seeking for a cure,
But I know that I can give where I can,
A kind word,
Or a lending hand,
I can give a few dollars to those that need cents,
I can try to do what I can,
So that's what I will try to do then I'll give in anyway that I can.

Trust,
It to be so,
Don't let it be the end you know,
I tried,
You tired not to trust,
While I trusted,
And that messed up what could be love between you and me,
And I rushed it,
And you crushed it,
We had it but now they are embers,
Burning our fingertips,
And we are dust,
We are completely gone over mistrust,
That wrecked this thing we called love.
Mary-Joy Feb 1
You know I did,
You gave me no reason to doubt you,
Didn't want to shut you out,
Didn't want to shout at you,
I trusted you,
But you don't trust me,
You thought I got together with your mate cause I'm to friendly,
Well he was the one trying to with me,
He's your mate,
But you don't believe me,
You believe him,
You trust him and not me.
Mary-Joy Feb 1
I want you fully,
Don't give me half of your heart,
I want you fully,
Don't give me half of your dreams,
I want you fully,
Don't give me half of your fears,
I want you fully,
Don't give me half of your life,
I want you fully.

It doesn't depend on your opinion of them to figure out who you are,
Yes, you are your scars,
Yes, you are the times you failed,
No, it doesn't define you,
It doesn't depend on others pointing our your past mistakes to figure out who you are now,
Because maybe you were fake back then,
Maybe you'd like to take back what you did then,
But who are you now?
What are you becoming?
Think you can do it,
Tell yourself you'll get through it,
Apologise for your failings,
Because you are not a failure now,
And this is who you are,
Better than who you were.

You’re like a roadblock,

You put up walls,

You’re like a roadblock,

You think I can’t get through,

Yes you’re in my way,

Yes I fell down today,

Yes I’ll get up and lead a new direction into a new pathway,

You think you’re a roadblock,

But I’ll get around you.

— The End —
