You don't know me  Reply with quote  

Don't tell me how to feel
Don't tell me how to be
You don't know what is real
You don't know me

Don't tell me who I am
Don't tell me what I see
You don't know what I am
You don't know me

Don't tell me what you need
Your touch repulses me
You don't know what I need
You don't know me

Don't tell me you're the love
Who'll finally set me free
Not you I'm thinking of
You don't know me

I know you're not the one
There is not one for me
While you can still leave, run
You don't know me

I was going to post this on the tenth anniversary of writing it, but got distracted. I'll probably put more of my old stuff in here soon.

I leave- not quite like a thief in the night
Taking nothing but I leave things behind
Empty wine bottles, bad haikus unsigned
Left on your cigarettes for you to find
To remind you of last night

Searching for clothes- wonder if I should go
But I can't sleep without the light
Too many hours until sunlight
I'm still smiling from last night
Only you & I will know

Do I share my joy with the world
Tell others of our pleasure
Or- instead of flying the flag unfurled
Guard it like a treasure

I want to say what you've done for me
But I'm afraid to speak
Revealing your power over me
Would only leave me weak

I'll take the risk & thank you
For stopping the rage & setting me free
Removing the block from creativity
But most of all, for giving me
What I wanted most from you

When the moon is shining bright
Like a beacon in the night
And your mind is dwelling on the past

All the dreams that won't come true
And there's nothing you can do
But this time you know you're free at last

In the light you cannot hide
All the darkness that's inside
Secret fears you wish you could forget

For tonight they fade away
No more terrors of the day
There is nothing that you can regret

Voices screaming in your head
While you lie awake in bed
Saying there is nothing worth your time

Troubles haunting you again
So you focus on the pain
And remember that you've passed your prime

You can wallow in despair
When there's no one left to care
And the blackness will consume your mind

Problems eat away your peace
They deny you a release
And you want to leave them all behind

You can shoot away the rage
Bend the bars & break the cage
Of the frightening things the voices say

With a needle or a gun
Get away from everyone
And you'll never have to face the day
