(inspired by the song of the same name)


I would be writing sweet nothings 

Over nothing

And then I could hear you say

That I’m up to something

Love been on a high

And you feel like it’s been drugging

Oops I mean dragging

When did it start to feel so low

Wait a minute 

What’s happened

I could see the ecstasy

It was me and your right next to me

Each day you’d be texting me

Until you sent that text to me



My emotions were bound to react


My defenses were feeling under attack

And once it set in, now I have to get you back

Since there’s no point of return 

I’m not getting you back



I want you to feel what I feel


My heart will bruise before it begins to heal


I wanted to know that this was real

And I can say that after all this time

That cut still on you hasn’t sealed


You know it comes naturally

That I still find words

To discuss past situations 

When I still get the urge

Discussing you only as nouns

When the actions made you a verb

No review of you in my book

I’ll just remember you as blurb
