Dear Earphones

Dear my poor lost earphones

I will miss your melodies and tones

It’s deep within my bones

Memories and emotions collide

For the last time I ride the sound tide

 

Your beats made me dance

In a musical trance

A musical trance

Through a symphonic wonderland

Don’t you understand?

Can’t you understand?

My life needs music to stand

 

My earphones, I held you close

But now I’m at my worst

Where have you gone?

I feel done and alone

In a soundless city

I long for that ditty

But you are lost to me

 

Your beats made me dance

In a musical trance

A musical trance

Through a symphonic wonderland

Don’t you understand?

Can’t you understand?

My life needs music to stand

 

I get ahold of myself

But place my sense on a shelf

I need to move on

I don’t care if it’s a con

Click! Another for my tunes

 

Dear my poor lost earphones

I miss your melodies and tones

That were deep within my bones

But I wish you well

For your new owner as well

Your loss I must condone

 

Your beats made me dance

In a musical trance

A musical trance

Through a symphonic wonderland

Don’t you understand?

Can’t you understand?

My life needs music to stand

Wait For Me

Hello, my friend how are you?

Please explain these unrestrained feelings

That are lingering and long overdue

My friend, this isn’t right

But today I must confess

That I love you even though I’m a mess

 

Please wait for me, I know—

I’m not a model or a 5-star actress

My messy hair and pimpled face say no

This leaves me in distress

I want to be your princess

But I’m too ugly for you now

So please wait for me

 

My friend, how do you do?

No matter how hard I try

These nonstop feelings want to continue

My friend, I want to quit

But today I must confess

That I love you even though I’m a mess

 

 

 

Please wait for me, I know—

You are a handsome superstar

Your photogenic hair and smile say no

My love is against the law

You’re a prince that’s for all

So I’m too ugly to compete for now

But please wait for me…wait for me

 

I won’t deny these emotions

But why now? Why not next year?

Right now I’m the fat and ugly edition

Who is among dolls that I’m sure you hold dear

Ah, I knew this was only fiction

I ready my surrender with a tear

 

Hello stranger, how have you been?
It’s no use, my heart thumps for you again

But I conceal these feelings that I’m sick of

I want to tune out love to the end

But my heart won’t mend

Still, I can’t say, “I love you”

So goodbye stranger, I wish you luck in love

 

A Mixtape’s Stupidity

Tell me the words I need to hear

Not a sharp discord

Not a broken record

No, not even a pitiful chorus

What I want to hear is just you

I thought I loved you

As the distance closed between us

I remember the warmth of the new Spring

We experienced together

The splashes of ice cream on your face

And the mixtape you shared with me

Your entire being locked into one little tape

My own personal portable you

The melodies mixed with your carefully chosen lyrics poured into me

I felt breathless, carried away by the rhythm of you

Tell me the words I need to hear

Not a sharp discord

Not a broken record

No, not even a pitiful chorus

What is it I want to hear–just you

I realized how stupid I was

Staring into the mirror and seeing nothing

Your mixtape was to complement me

But I’m only left with empty words and a discord

The words you shed became old, wrinkled, and overused for another, not me

I wanted to hear you–

My love, my one-sided love

I wanted to hear the sincerity

But like an unfinished mixtape

You played with my emotions and left me dissonant
