Drawn To Something Better


I shudder, at the fear

__of not having you near again

Even though I shouldn't really give a shit

And maybe I put up a front, that I don't mind

But I do

I don't just wanna fuck the shit out of you

I'm drawn the something better

I can't quite put the finger on it

But that shouldn't matter

'Cause "I know I'm not just horny"

"I'm in love"

But it happens every book

Often more than once

And as I suffer your disappearance

Things are not being clear to me

Whatever the Hell is wrong with a man loving you

Is something I'm not quite that sure of

Maybe that's why you hang your hair

__behind your ears

"To make them look big

__in hopes that no one will would want you like I do"

But that just makes you even more cute

I'm drawn to you

And I may not know why

And may never do anything about it

Not even pray for you to be mine

Just like I am yours

For some unknown fuckin' reason

That I'm not all bent our of shape about

But still in the grips of this pain

Of not having you

Not seeing you

Not talking to you is hard

And it's not going to get any easier

But why this hurts so much

__is beyond me

So where ever the Hell you are

I hope you're not getting locked up

Or fined for it

And I hope to see your work someday

And if I could afford it again

I'd sure like to join you

'Cause I'd sure pick "hittin' up a wall"

Over "hittin' a wall"

Any day

Or night

I hope this is not goodbye

And I don't just want in your pussy

I want in your heart

On your mind

And in your life

Thanks. Sorry for Ghosting Booksie Silk. Work has been stressful, and then there was the Spring game. Glad you liked it.
