I honestly wouldn't mind
if one day I woke up
and the memory of you was gone,
but the lesson that you taught me
I took the road less traveled by
and never did I find a guy
who I found worthy
of catching my eye.
I don't know how you can claim I drained you
when you were slowly sucking the life out of me
second by second
word by word
action by action
lie by lie.
I wish you the very best.
The very best in Hell.
Don't save a place for me;
I won't be joining you.
I knew in my heart it was over
before I even got on the plane.
I don't know why I trekked half the country
to find it out again.
I want to know if you felt
that moment you returned
and found me gone.
Thanks for being just like the others,
even as you did your damnedest
to make me believe
Of all the things we left unsaid
there is one thing
I'm glad I didn't say.
I'm afraid to look in your eyes
because one glance is all it will take
for you to understand why I left.
I would rather not be a human.
It requires too much thinking
too much heartbreak
too much being.
I would rather like to be a tree
perhaps a willow by a pond
peacefully providing shade to those that sit beneath me
and a shelter to the birds in my branches.
Sometimes, ya just gotta let the emotions out.
