No Wonder I Never Could Remember


It came like a sudden shock

Mem'ries that once were blocked

Forgotten like an amnesia

Now released back to me

I laughed at all thee images

From 21 years ago

How you never really loved me

And how I could never stop

__believing you were the one for me

How I was so desperate

Lacking the faith

__to wait for something real

I tried to court you

I remember the ways

__and the things I did

____to try

I remember those moments now

I can understand

Why I kicked them out

Of my memory

I remember waiting for you

__so we could walk together

____to our next class

How it was such a new thing to me

And how traumatically embarrassing

How I had to transition


Just trying to hide my love for you

And how it was shown on my face

Thee idea that you knew

But you didn't care

And it wasn't fair

So I took my love for you

And threw it away

It's never been the same

I don't even care for you anymore

After the way you started to treat me

How you saw me

How you didn't even know

A thing about me

Every idea you came up with

__about who I was

Was too far from the truth

For you to have ever really cared

__to know me

Like you never even tried

__to get to know me

You made no real effort to

Our friendship was fake

And you didn't even wanna stop hurting me

I was done with you entirely
