taken from my book, "Stuck On Thee 'If Only's"

Carla's Vanishing


"Let her know

That" she's not bad

Get her in

The right state of mind

Take her to a secluded joint

To make things work

Maybe I don't have any rope

But I've smoked enough of it though

She has been so wronged

I feel for her

And she ain't even mind

Her life still exists

Even though I'll never again

Witnis her livin' it

'Cause popcorn is the best

AndI don't care about the rest

But, this not a movie

She'll never be with me

I've been fluttered thru the madness

Longer than I've been in love and shit

But I know all along

The story will change

And I will find a new love

Some one who won't hurt me

And leave without saying "goodbye"

Like she did

But on second thought

If I'm not the type to say "goodbye" to

How can there be any one

To get ahold of me

And stay?

Never mind

I rest my case
