That taste that tempts me,
that pulls the poison away,
is everything that
I can think of today.
And I want it to end –
that thirst must be gone –
because i can’t pretend
I was ever that wrong.

I can’t pretend
that I wanted what you had
I can’t pretend
I was ever that sad.
Now that you’re gone
my life has gotten strong,
and I want it that way
for oh so long.

So I will ignore,
your wanting desire,
and set my sights on
a much bigger fire.
Maybe with that,
a new taste will occur –
but, when it comes to love,
you can never be sure.



Welcome to the empty recesses of my mind! I'm a recent college graduate realizing a Creative Writing degree was a bad idea. Give me a pity like. Or you could check out the about sections (on the front page and about this author page) on my blog to learn a little more about me. Whatever.
