POEM/SONG – LOST MIND
So now here we are.
You holding your red guitar.
Me standing in your doorway.
Waiting to hear you say.
Baby I want you to be mine.
Forever our love will shine.
Then I hear you play that tune.
And I know we are over much too soon.
Don’t you see it’s me you’re killing slowly.
Oh baby I don’t wanna dance just hold me.
But you smile still playing your red guitar.
You know what you’re doing, it’s who you are.
I turn and head out the door.
Because now I know the score.
I lost my damn mind when I walked out and left you yesterday.
You took my damn heart, ripped it up into ten million different ways.
And now I’m done.
And now I’m gone.
I don’t want to ever love again.
I prefer to feel the pain.
Be a love rebel one with no heart.
Its a perfect day to start.
It’s now 6 in the morning.
The rain is coming down hard, it’s pouring.
I hear the whistling swan.
So I put my red heels on.
Paint over my new scar.
I need to go back, get the red guitar.
No longer will it play that tune.
The one that broke my heart much too soon.
Standing at your front door.
I see you down on one knee.
Telling me I’m the one it’s only me.
My heart stops but my mind starts to race.
Baby I can see the truth, it’s plain to see on your face.
I can see the rise of the ace of spades.
Your shanking hands on my ankle.
Begging me to stay so we can get into that tangle.
I want to run, but my heart is weighing me down
Gleaming is your tainted crown.
I finally see who you are.
I don’t care for your red guitar.
I am free, I am free.
