I Can't Say "I Love You"


I'm searching for clues

Of why I should love you

But all that I see

Are Facebook posts of you and your man

You obviously just won't leave him

So I can't say "I love you"

Because that's not something I should do

So with a heavy heart

__I forget about you

____and love no one

Time for me to just move on

Get on with my life

__and love no one

Nobody seems to give a shit

About me, or anything

I am a washed up has-been, I admit

But I just wanna love some one again

This whole world is full of nobody to love

Even the girl named "Charity"

Could not stay in my heart

Now that we have fell apart

Nothing's ever gonna work itself out

Charity is gone

__and you're just not single

Live in Mexico

And it seems you're gonna stay there

But I can't stay on the pity pot

'Cause that's not what I'm gonna do

I'm just not gonna have you


But, God, it's horrible

__when you can't love some one

Life is barely moving on

My heart just wishes it could have you

All to it's very own

But my heart is not human

__so why should I care?

It's just a blood pumper in my chest

Flooding blood in my head

Until I'm light headed

And have to lay down and rest

I'm never gonna let you get the best of me

'Cause you don't give a shit for me

You're completely clueless

Just like any other girl

Who once stole my heart away

Thee uneasy pain will go away

If I just forget about you

I have nothing to say to you today

Great poem. Never tell a woman you love her. She either knows or isn't worth loving or knowing. I should know. I'm in love with three distant women at the moment. The more muses you have the poetry you produce. Well, in theory.
