boy math dictates (id stay indebted to him.) to be loved (id gift it to him.) is to settle up. (id come knocking to collect for him.) that to be (id might be nothing but charity for him.) owned (id liquidate any asset asked by him.) is being willing (Cash or Credit?) to owe.
I owe you my life My wisdom My talents My strengths My beauty. I thought I knew myself but I’ll never know me like How you've known me. And somehow You looked passed the ugly And deemed me Deserving. Pulled me to safety Away from the edge Inspired within me an urge To give you my pledge To serve.
When I thought I reached a peak I was proven to be short-sighted. When I was presented with the answers My heart was delighted And my soul lifted. You are like the stick my stem is stuck to As I grow tall, broad and straight. You are the rope I hold on to As I climbed and floated, And you weren't bothered by my weight.
You’re a friend to me, You’re the 'someone I always wanted'. Heard me cry scream and sob And you were patient when insulted. And so I live by your mercy As you've been exalted, And I pledge to continue serving So that I can prove to you To myself That I am deserving.
I think of the nights in your car. Watching the stars. I pointed out the ones that fell, While you watched me from the driver's seat. One night I saw three, Set ablaze by gravity. I silently wished upon them For it to always be that way. You telling me such sweet things. Making me feel wanted and understood. Sliding your hands through my hair. Fingertips dancing across my skin. You didn't pay attention to The falling rocks, You watched as my heart fell From the sky and right onto your lap. You were the one person That made the world disappear. Now we're strangers. You've hurt me like I've done to others. Past pain floods in my ribs. I suppose the tears Are just the ones I owe.
I climb your wall of infinite disparities I scratch my leg on your thorned stories I cry my tears over your heart that bleeds I'll lift up a thousand stones I'll call you with a million phones I'll give you all of my bones For I smile every time you look at me For I open my doors if this is where you wanna be For I'll be with you whenever you need me
