That Saturday afternoon after a long hard day you dropped a text;
"I have so much to tell you, when can I call you next."
I scrunched my face, I wanted to be left alone;
I just wanted my own company, smoke and that's all.
Still, you were sweet and kind to me always;
So told you, tonight or after today.
I was not anticipating or expecting it, so when I heard the buzz I did got scared;
Who is it that's calling me so late?
Your voice calmed the panic
And shushed my racing mind;
It's was alright, it told me in quiet.
Your voice is a deep as your mind
And as soft as your character, lover at it's best;
We talked about your day and nights.
We talked about heaven, hell and the rest.
The night turned to day, days into the week;
Id force my eyes open to just hear you speak.
I know your heartbreaks and your sad days;
I never told mine for your would crunch under the weight.
Weight of my emotions if I opened up.
It was selfish I know yet I flirted;
I knew you fall too soon yet I did it.
I showed you the girl you wanted,
I pretended to be her;
The damsels in distress, the girl who was really hurt.
I never knew when I stop pretending and showed the real me
The vulnerable, the shy and meek.
But I knew it was a phase;
the emotions are a waste of space.
know I'll be over the joke that we have;
I've been too many time in this half.
I am hopeful but not naive;
For I know the drama that you like.
You're not here for a walk, even stroll;
You want a clown and soon you'll be gone.
I can't pretend to be the caged Bird that you want;
I am an eagle
And the best hunter of 'em all.
So I'll entertain and have fun as long as it lasts;
And leave you with my memory and leave without a single scare.
