My Heart Is Pounding 'Neath My Ribs


I don't wanna spend

All my wasted time

Not making you mind

And being forced into forgetting you

And I don't wanna wake

Into the light of day

Of Sunday night being over already

But Sunday night will fall

And the movie will end

And that will be all


I thought I felt no other

__single pain

One that hurt

And left with no score

To put upon the board

I'm a little lame

My brains needs to be splattered

My heart is pounding

'Neath my ribs

And, oh! your pussy!

I just want a piece of it!


The damage to my love

That just burns! and burns! and burns!

All I wanna do

__is be satisfied

____with one evening with you!

But I know what's gonna happen

I know what to expect

__from a friend date

I've been on them most my life

It's just gonna be goodbye

You'll never be mine

And I'll cry and cry and cry


But this isn't another one of them

__"poor me" poems

I just got a lot of paper

And nothing to do

__but think of you

I'm not saddened yet

This has just gone to my head

And scares me a little bit

But I am only nervous

It's a natural feeling

Just wish it was a beginning

To something promising in thee end

But like I said

__"my wicked brain

____has a problem

______with overthinking it all"

I like the ending of this and how you express your feelings and your doubts. There's some frustration. There's some optimism. There's some introspect.

Thank you. Glad i took it out of the song lyric genre, and put it in poetry genre. It don't rhyme much enough for music. Doesn't even have a chorus. But I'm glad you liked it. (:
