The Diary

October 23, 2015

 

THE DIARY


The diary I keep of you has a grudge to hold or two
I never intended to write them down but what else could I do
It was either lock them out or let them in
Either way, I knew they'd win
But when the past runs to catch up with me
I'll pay these dues and be set free
What else could you ask of me
From my diary I read 

 

The diary I keep of you is a fairytale that's barely true
I leave out what looks best to you and exaggerate a line or two
My perspective holds subjectivity
I'm bitter from our brevity
No long-winded nights where we'd lose sleep
The lacking of what could've been
What else could you ask of me
From my diary I read 

 

The diary I keep of you has notes I wrote from me to you
I have no courage to send them on and don't know where I'd send them to
Each one has a loving tone
If only then I would have known
I'd have ripped them up without a thought
Regardless those words were caught
What else could you ask of me
From my diary I read 

 

The diary I keep of you has every word I didn't say to you
I remember how I tried to tell but never from my lips they flew
Several days I mourned you gone
Angry you made two into one
I think of you from time to time
Wishing that you still were mine
What else could you ask of me
From my diary I read
