Who You Are She’s amazing. And she’s just for me. She’s more than expected And all she could be. She tries her best, But to me, she succeeds. She’s so much more Than I ever believed. She surprises me everyday With her smile. She’s brightness in every way; It’s her style. Give her all that you can, And all the while, She’ll steal your heart away.

Who You Are

She’s amazing.

And she’s just for me.

She’s more than expected

And all she could be.

She tries her best,

But to me, she succeeds.

She’s so much more

Than I ever believed.

She surprises me everyday

With her smile.

She’s brightness in every way;

It’s her style.

Give her all that you can,

And all the while,

She’ll steal your heart away.

Matter It’s not a matter of what you see, What you know, Or what you believe. It’s not based on how you are, Where you stay, be it near or far. I’m in love with everything about you, The things you say, And what you do. But I respect that we need space, Despite just how much I miss your face.

Matter

It’s not a matter of what you see,

What you know,

Or what you believe.

It’s not based on how you are,

I’m in love with everything about you,

The things you say,

And what you do.

But I respect that we need space,

Despite just how much

I miss your face.

In The Time That’s Past I remember our adventures, But you, I’d have to ask… We talk as though we’re strangers. You hide behind your flask. Will we ever meet When this is all said and done? I beg of you, “do not retreat” - The words of a loved one. I hang onto your every word; They resonate in my dreams. Everything I once preferred Now torn in two extremes. The one, to give you all my love, The other, to give you none. We fit together like a glove, A glove meant for no one.

Rising Action Tensions are building You can cut it with a knife Down comes the ceiling We’re exposed to the light We’re weak and unsure Covered by facade But with time to mature We’ll realize we’re flawed

Rising Action

Tensions are building
You can cut it with a knife
Down comes the ceiling
We’re exposed to the light
We’re weak and unsure
Covered by facade
But with time to mature
We’ll realize we’re flawed

Deserted Benjamin, Benjamin, Benjamin It’s not as though you don’t know, I’m in love And it’s the best feeling ever. Benjamin, Benjamin, Benjamin It’s nothing I wouldn’t show. You see, From here it only gets better. Benjamin, Benjamin, Benjamin Why won’t you accept my love? I still try To pretend it doesn’t hurt me. Benjamin, Benjamin, Benjamin Forget all I said above. This is silly; Meanwhile knowing that you’d desert me.

Deserted

Benjamin, Benjamin, Benjamin
It’s not as though you don’t know,
I’m in love
And it’s the best feeling ever.

Benjamin, Benjamin, Benjamin
It’s nothing I wouldn’t show.
You see,
From here it only gets better.

Benjamin, Benjamin, Benjamin
Why won’t you accept my love?
I still try
To pretend it doesn’t hurt me.

Benjamin, Benjamin, Benjamin
Forget all I said above.
This is silly;
Meanwhile knowing that you’d desert me.

Infatuation When you’re in love it’s hard to focus; When you’re in love it’s work just to breathe. The impossible lies beneath us And the doubts are hard to believe. When you’re in love you go crazy; When you’re in love you’re not yourself. The realities become hazy And you’re living for something else. When you’re in love you speak truths; When you’re in love you rise to the occasion. There’s the proof that this is youth, Not love, but infatuation.

Infatuation

When you’re in love it’s hard to focus;
When you’re in love it’s work just to breathe.
The impossible lies beneath us
And the doubts are hard to believe.

When you’re in love you go crazy;
When you’re in love you’re not yourself.
The realities become hazy
And you’re living for something else.

When you’re in love you speak truths;
When you’re in love you rise to the occasion.
There’s the proof that this is youth,
Not love, but infatuation.

The Modern Woman I am woman. Hear me roar… as I suck and tuck my way into these jeans. Watch me as I prowl my dangerous prowl in high heels that leave my feet distorted and sore. Be amazed as I leap from exercise machine to exercise machine and replenish myself with a salad. Admire my stamina as I rush from errand to errand with enough time to spare to fix my hair, adjust my top, and spritz myself with scents of vanilla in the bathroom. Fear me as I show my dominance with my obsessive stares, nervous giggles, laughing at all his jokes and reassuring him of what an impressive man he is. Respect me as I watch him ignore me for another mate, cry my way through a tub of ice cream, and drive away all my friends by relating every topic back to him. Be shocked as I pick myself up the next day and do it all over again in the same dismal hopes of impressing the unimpressed. I am woman, and this is getting pathetic.

Bounded I may never feel those hands. I may never kiss those lips. But if I did, I am certain, I would be happy. Make me happy. Make me delighted. I may never know the name. I may never see the face. But if I did, I am certain, I would not forget. Make me remember. Make me reminded. My care is endless. My love is boundless. But I, myself, am bounded. To know these things about you, To have what I will of you, I will be freed.

Bounded

I may never feel those hands.
I may never kiss those lips.
But if I did, I am certain, I would be happy.
Make me happy.
Make me delighted.
I may never know the name.
I may never see the face.
But if I did, I am certain, I would not forget.
Make me remember.
Make me reminded.
My care is endless.
My love is boundless.
But I, myself, am bounded.
To know these things about you,
To have what I will of you,
I will be freed.

No Hay Salida Me levanto y me besas en el hombro. Miro en tu cara, yo llena de asombro. Peleando en la noche, durmiendo ceñudos. Estoy intentando, yo te lo juro. La vida simple es lo que yo prefiero, Pero que difícil es decirte yo te quiero. Como el frio de medio febrero, Tu vacío me congela como hielo. Pero tu sonrisa a mi me funde. Y me libera que me empuje. Tus ojos me mezclan y me confunden. Mientras tu toque y tu caricia me conducen. En la trampa no hay salida Y no me quiero ir.

No Hay Salida

Me levanto y me besas en el hombro.
Miro en tu cara, yo llena de asombro.
Peleando en la noche, durmiendo ceñudos.
Estoy intentando, yo te lo juro.

La vida simple es lo que yo prefiero,
Pero que difícil es decirte yo te quiero.
Como el frio de medio febrero,
Tu vacío me congela como hielo.

Pero tu sonrisa a mi me funde.
Y me libera que me empuje.
Tus ojos me mezclan y me confunden.
Mientras tu toque y tu caricia me conducen.

En la trampa no hay salida
Y no me quiero ir.

Do I scare you? I am falling for you, That much is true. But don’t shy away Or do what you do When people get too close. Do I pose a threat? Or you rather not be near me? Not like this, not yet. I admit, it’s hard not to fall With all the things that you do, The words you say, But most of all it’s just you. And the person you are, Just so hard to resist. It’s not easy to wake up Without you to kiss. But I’ll manage as I have. I don’t want to make you mad, So if my feelings upset you, I guess you can be glad that No, I don’t love you, But that I’m starting to is true. Believe me, it’s scares me Just as much as it scares you.

Do I scare you?

I am falling for you,
That much is true.
But don’t shy away
Or do what you do
When people get too close.
Do I pose a threat?
Or you rather not be near me?
Not like this, not yet.
I admit, it’s hard not to fall
With all the things that you do,
The words you say,
But most of all it’s just you.
And the person you are,
Just so hard to resist.
It’s not easy to wake up
Without you to kiss.
But I’ll manage as I have.
I don’t want to make you mad,
So if my feelings upset you,
I guess you can be glad that
No, I don’t love you,
But that I’m starting to is true.
Believe me, it’s scares me
Just as much as it scares you.
