Where I want to be


Linger longer lover do
In your trap I've now been snared
It's just where I want to be

Broken hearts I've caused a few
Loneliness I've had that too
Musicians write songs about me

Life's been peppered with mistakes
Everything done turned out bad 
But I'll not jump from cliff to sea

Nor will I yet walk the plank
Or revenge on others take
For you'll create a better me

    leeway to save the day.

  10. Nice poem. I hope the one is able to get stronger and become "a better me" without totally needed to rely on the other for all the strength to do so.

  15. The kind of lover that makes you a better person is always the best.


    Just so you know, I spewed my sip of water all over my computer when you mentioned testosterone and presidents on my post. Too funny.

  16. Musicians write songs about me - I guess we can all identify with a song especially when broken hearts are involved.
