POETRY

Lying in bed

She turned and whispered

We could be heroes-

her eyes glistened.

Then she fell back into a slumber

And I was left alone to wonder

am I a hero or another villain

I wake her up- listen

Am I the one you find fulfilling

Or is your love a feeling you're instilling?

Or was it installing and now stalling because you found out your life is more

important?

Damaged yet acting flawless

Actions becoming more and more lawless

Am I a dog being strung along?

The truth is I don't care-

I'm just trying to write a song

And I know that I may be wrong

But girl can't we just have some fun

Why does everything gotta be so serious

Why is this making me so delirious

And I can't see straight

Cuz this relationship seems fake

I'm mister 2 face

With you one moment-

Then far away

I'm mister 2 face

Home with you-

Then in another place

I'm mister 2 face

With yet another pretty face

Yea I'm mister 2 face

The one you hate to love-

Yet love to hate

While sitting on a park bench

Whistling a tune,

A birds lands on my shoulder

Out of the blue.

He cocks his head left,

He cocks his head right,

He chirps something in my ear

Much to his delight.

"Once is enough

Twice is too much

Three go away

Four go insane"

I look at the bird

It's black beak glistens

I talk back to the bird

And he eagerly listens

"Sometimes I miss

Sometimes I don't

Sometimes I wonder if there's any hope.

I'm never happy,

I'm always sad

When in pain-

I'm always glad

Is it weird to enjoy being depressed?"

No says the bird

as he puffs out his chest-

I turn away for a moment and look at the ground,

And in that moment he flys away without a sound

I look back at my shoulder

The bird is gone-

So I keep on whistling my sweet song
