taken from my book, "Our Founded Feelings"

Would It Ever Work?


You have my heart

But what are you going to do with it?

Will we fall apart?

Or will we make something out of this feeling?

Do you feel it too?

Or am I a complete "loon"?

I don't understand the reason why

__I want you like I do

I just wanna put my love in your heart

So I won't be thee only one feeling it

But it sounds so hard to do

So I'll settle for paper and pen

Because I know I'm sick

I just couldn't see myself fitting in your life

But I'm not ready to say "goodbye"

I want you forever

It doesn't matter if I have no reason

My heart wasn't born with with reasoning

I don't know why I can't be loved

I just know I can't

So maybe I am just one big stupid dumb-ass

Who can't learn to live without

__somebody that I can't have

But it's not thee end of the world

This is pretty fun to me

It's also very frustrating

In fact, I'm lost in my desire

With unmeetable demands

I just want you so bad

__that I'm starting to crack

Only having you all to myself

__will release me from this Hell

I realize I'm to blame

__for feeling this way

But I just want what I want

And what I want is to have you

In ev'ry way possible

But in my life, possibilities are limited

I can't get married

And shouldn't have children

I don't think any one

__would want an unemployable father

Who's crazy as all Hell

And cannot be bothered

I just want you

Oh God

__I'm doomed

____aren't I?

Seems like you'll never be mine

But I'm having a good time

Just writing you into my life

But if things never change

There'll never be a you-and-I

We'll whither, and falter

I'll once again be heart broken

With painful memories

__flooding my head

Going blind with heartache

And completely insane

Off the deep end

And drowning in a sea of pain

That will capture me once again

I don't want to go back to living like that

It's "you", I want to have
