Some Other Song

No butterfly tummy
Instead an angry wasp
When love turned to Ashes
Empty without grasp
I gave you intimacy
I gave you rest
Never asked you to need me
Just a little tenderness
You are unavailable
You are offline
Attention given elsewhere
Attention that should be mine
Now I want you out of here
Now I want you gone
If it’s butterflies I’m searching for
I’ll play some other song

An Arrangement

I fell into you
When we met
Accidentally
Fated design
At the right time
Right place
The space in my head
Perfectly
Suited
For an affair
Of the mind
I listen
Your life fascinates me
The time line
Captivates
I’m content
With an arrangement
Not meant
For forever
And no lies
To devastate
You seem surprised
That your hypnotic eyes
To me don’t mean love
I’m too tired
To explain
That I had enough
Love
And it means
Things
Get complicated
I am passion
And control
And No anytime
Suits me fine
As we speak
I care for you
What you’ve been through
I understand
But, know I won’t demand
More
Than
This
So if we don’t kiss
There’s no kiss and tell
And, when you are ready
I will wish you well
And thank you, too
For the gift of you
