I wrote this on the swings at the park. Just a random fact.

Some things will wax
Most of it will wane
But these things never change
The pulling in your heart
Speechless, you lose your voice
the actor forgets his part
 
Sometimes it looks different
Most of it comes from your mind
Pessimistic thoughts when you're in a bind
Don't ever blame yourself,
Regardless, of my mistakes
take my pictures off your shelf
 
If I hurt you again
I promise to help you heal
Even if it means I will never feel
The gentle pleasure of your lips
and the affectionate caress of your hands
For you, from the poison wine I take sips
