Like We Used To….

I could feel her breath as she’s sleeping next to me
Sharing pillows and cold feet
She can feel my heart; fell asleep to its beat
Under blankets and warm sheets
If only I could be in that bed again
If only it were me instead of him

Does he watch your favorite movies?
Does he hold you when you cry?
Does he let you tell him all your favorite parts?
When you’ve seen it a million times
Does he sing to all your music?
While you dance to purple rain
Does he do all these things?
Like I used to?

14 months and 7 days ago,
Oh I know you know how we felt about that night
Just your skin against the window
Oh we took it slow and we both know
It shoulda been me inside that car
It should have been me instead of him in the dark

Does he watch your favorite movies?
Does he hold you when you cry?
Does he let you tell him all your favorite parts?
When you’ve seen it a million times
Does he sing to all your music?
While you dance to purple rain
Does he do all these things?
Like I used to?

I know that love happens all the time, love
(I’m a sucker for that feeling)
You’re on my mind, love
(I always end up feeling cheated)
And that happens all the time, love
(Oh darling, I know I’m not needed)

Will he love you like I loved you?
Will he tell you everyday?
Will he make you feel like your invincible
With every word he’ll say
Can you promise me that this was right?
Don’t throw it all away
Can you do all these things?
Will you do all these things?
Like we used to

Oh like we used to

A Geek’s Poem

I didn’t ask for fame
I didn’t ask for acknowledgment
I only want to play
with the language I’ve known for years

I didn’t ask for wealth
I didn’t ask for dignity
I only want pleasure
with the thing I’ve known as both friend and enemy

I asked for great mind
far greater than the world ever had
I asked for strong heart
far stronger than the earth itself

the taste is still there
the feel still warms my heart
how long will it stay?
how fast will it go?

it did hurt me sometimes
it did confuse me sometimes
but what lies beneath makes me smile
what goes beyond makes me grateful

as I see it no longer as a thing
as I call it no longer as a symbolic name
it becomes a friend of my days
a brother of my life

I’ll see how far it will go
how deep it will hurt
until I have my time alone with you
until you really tell me what’s the secret of your beauty
for that moment I’ll wait
no matter how long it takes…
