A No One Situation

it is a no win situation my friends are everything but are you?  you walk in and sit down and tell me how to decorate my life. but my walls have always been colourful yet you demand black and white.  it is a no win situation and I know it and it is strange but true you claim to have my road map but do you?  you have given my personal history it’s own tragic Hollywood twist i have been rewritten and retold and the facts, all but missed.  it is a no win situation and I know it and it is strange but true you claimed to be my mirror but are you?

Something Foolish

i am only what you make me out to be you never actually asked it is these heady ideas too which you clasp it is these giddy notions of which you will not part i am not a real person just a series of pieces barely finishing your jigsaw i am only what you make me out to be despite my often lofty ideals it is foolish of me to want to be me it is not what you want it does not fill your vast empty space i cannot stand around forever looks like closeness will have to wait.
