Rivalry

this could have been a war

but no, i wanted a love story.

i couldn’t have been your understudy

when my line said “love conquers all thingsā€

and you read “i don’t understand this part at all.”

Guesswork

i wanted you in all the shades they make these days

give you the patchwork quilt i made

tell you all the things that could’ve left you guessing

and thought that would’ve lead to some chemistry.

but the best way to make a fire is to leave the sparks be

even if it’s rainy.

i never understood that until i tried to fix you

when you weren’t even broken by me.

i wanted you so much, no wonder my life felt lacking

i needed you so much, no wonder i lost myself when it counted.


yeah, at this point it’s all confusing to me too. happy reading?
