Bad Movies

FOREWORD: Inspiration is a bitch with real bad timing cuz I have a 3000 word essay on Human Resource Management and a final exam on the same that are due tomorrow (actually today cuz it’s 01:05 am) and I’ve been writing this love song.

 

She’s waiting on someone who used to send her notes
that she’d turn to songs with her voice…
Her days are all spent now in a haze of smoke,
the only company that she keeps by choice.

Her words are unspoken and her mom’s unsure
if it’s crying she hears in the night;
And she knows how to move on — she’s done it before
but this time she’s short on her usual might.

All along she thought it was just one of those things
that end with some deleted photographs;
She was too smart to see that a guy made of just big dreams
could be the best that she’d never have.

An ex has been calling, trying to apologize
and do all it takes to win her back;
He confesses regret but the most that he’ll get are unoriginal lies
as she misses a love that he lacks.

And it’s not like she’s lonely, she got all her friends
who tell her of some prospects they stalk;
Most times she keeps herself from being mean to them
but she’s hurting way too bad to give a fuck.

And all along she thought she was one of those girls
that were too tough to cry out in pain—
Under cold midnight breezes as her body slowly freezes
she gives up trying to give him up, again.

Bad movies, posh dinners — all fail to begin her
life again although she’s loaded with assistance…
She knows where it leads to but it’s no good — she needs to
keep loving the man of her dreams from a distance.

All along she thought it was just one of those things
that end with some deleted photographs;
She was too smart to see that a guy made of just big dreams
could be the best that she’d never have.

And all along she thought she was one of those girls
that were too tough to cry out in pain—
Under cold midnight breezes as her body slowly freezes
she gives up trying to give him up, again.

All along she thought that she bought her own words
when she said he was just one sweet moment;
But now all she thinks of when sometimes she fakes love
is that she’d kill to let him know just how much he meant.
