Finding The Woman I'm Meant To Be

Raindrop Melody

She closed her eyes
to the sound of the rain
every raindrop in unison
to the sting of the pain
the way it hit the window
with the slightest beating
it reminded her of life
and the history repeating
every drop a reminder
of all that could’ve been
where she went wrong
and where she’d try again
as the thunder didn’t roll
and the lightning didn’t flash
she’d let the raindrops play
like the music of her past
the strumming of the pain
the beating of each drop
the pitter patter of her heart
breath filling silent spots
as she listened along
to the painful melody
she prayed the storm would pass
and she’d sleep for eternity.

Fallen Leaf

Fallen from a tree
I’m floating in the wind
And no matter where I go
or how hard I try
I can’t find another tree
To let me back in.

I remember holding his hand
Through the store
So today when I took someone else there
I waited in the car

I remember tagging along with him
After work to the gym
So I always find ways to avoid
Going there again

You’d never go with me
To the football games
When you used to go with her
Because it wouldn’t have been the same

Now I see things from your point of view
He will never be him,
I’ll never be her –
They’ll never be you.

As the days passed by
Happiness fading, in and out
Nothing could stay, nothing would –
Unless she loved herself.

Once Bitten Twice Shy

You said something
During our final goodbye
It made me think –
Made me understand why

Why we would always fly
But never land
Why you’d break each promise
Now I understand

See, loyalty
It isn’t your thing
And commitment?
It burns you and stings

And the words you said
Made my eyes open up
You spoke the truth
And called your own bluff

And the words you said
Showed me the truth
The man I knew –
He wasn’t you

The truth you spoke
Should have broken my heart
But I already knew
And I already broke

I see you for you –
The real man, the real guy
Now I understand
Once bitten, twice shy.
