Tired of assuming

Tired of playing 

My temper is hot 

I’m not ready to stop 

 

I hate waiting 

When I know what I want 

 

I’m bold and I’m brash 

I know we are old

It’s you that I want 

I don’t settle for gold

I love you too much 

To see you crumble 

Take a deep breath

It’s time for us to rumble 

 

My ego is in check

Yet I am not perfect 

You aren’t too 

But I know you’re worth it 

 

You really are perfect

But only to me 

My confidence said 

It needs you with me 

 

Don’t lie to me 

I know you don’t trust 

If you don’t show your face 

Your heart will rust 

 

I’m bold and I’m brash 

I know we are old

It’s you that I want 

I don’t settle for gold

I love you too much 

To see you crumble 

Take a deep breath

It’s time for us to rumble 

 

You didn’t ask 

But I’m there 

You didn’t want me

But I care 

 

Push me away 

And I’ll find you 

I have something to say

Something to do

 

Distance keeps us apart 

We must find a phone to start 

I promise I won’t waste your time 

I finally learned how to shine

 

The fact you loved me before 

Makes me want you more

You could see kindness in pain 

When I couldn’t do the same 

 

I had to run away 

The selfish part of me wanted to stay 

 

I’m bold and I’m brash 

I know we are old

It’s you that I want 

I don’t settle for gold

I love you too much 

To see you crumble 

Take a deep breath

It’s time for us to rumble 

 

I’ve sorted this out 

But I’m left with a test 

My love is a spout 

And for you I won’t rest 

 

You don’t deserve 

Anything but romance 

Don’t say a word

I’ll take the stance 

 

I wish I could hear 

What you wanted to say

But I’m glad I didn’t 

I’ll wait for a new day 

 

You’ll love me more

Please give me a chance

We don’t need to be in person 

To feel true romance 

 

Life isn’t the same 

When I don’t see your name

Thoughts Before Rem

Nice poem. I can tell though that it is supposed to be a song. Good work.
