many times we often think it but never say it, yet it can be mind controlling in so many ways if you allow your thoughts to concieve you

I SOMETIMES WONDER ARE YOU FOR REAL

YOU SAID YOU WERE READY TO BE MARRIED

DO YOU REALLY KNOW WHAT YOU WERE ASKING

IN MY MIND I REALLY DOUBT YOU WERE READY FOR THE TASKING

SEE WHILE WE WERE ENGAGED

THINGS SEEM SO MUCH DIFFERENT

OR PERHAPS I AM THE ONE THAT HAS CHANGE

MAYBE I ASK FOR TOO MUCH

PERHAPS I AM A BIT TOO DEMANDING

WE BARELY SPEND ANY TIME TOGETHER ANYMORE

AND YET WHEN TIME PRESENTS ITSELF

YOU HANG OUT WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND I WITH MINE

WHEN I AM NOT HOME

I DO NOT EXPECT YOU TO SIT BORED AND ALONE

I CALL TO HEAR YOUR VOICE

WHILE TALKING I TAKE NOTE TO THE BACKGROUND

LISTENING FOR A DISHONEST SPOUSE

WONDERING IF YOU’RE PLAYING CAT AND MOUSE

MY MIND DO PLAY TRICKS ON ME

MAYBE I SHOULD JUST LET THINGS BE

IN MY MIND I DO HAVE NOTIONS

THOUGHTS OF DO YOU REALLY LOVE ME

DO YOU REALLY KNOW WHAT THAT WORD MEANS

I DOUBT THAT YOU DO

YET STILL SPECULATING ARE YOU TRUE

DON’T GET SURPRISE AS IF YOU KNOW NOT

ACTION SPEAKS LOUDER THAN WORDS

SO WITH WORDS DELIGHT ME NOT

MAYBE THIS IS WHY I HAVE DOUBTS

TO ME I SACRIFICE AND YOU TAKE

YOUR ACTIONS SHOW YOU DO NOT CARE

CAUSING MY MIND TO FEEL TREATED UNFAIR

THESE THOUGHTS I HAVE ALL THE TIME

SIMPLY CONFESSIONS TO YOU OF MY MIND
