No You Didn’t!
They asked me about my craft
They ask me why I am so daft
I tell them that it gets me by
After having said, “Goodbye”
“No you didn’t!” they still recant
You write as if he’s in your hat!
I tell them they don’t have a clue
He’s gone and I am not so blue
They pity me for hanging on
To a hope he’ll come back, COME!
But I say even if he were dead
The love I feel is stuck in my head
“Why, oh why?! But he did you WRONG!
I don’t care! In my heart he belongs
So it isn’t love to win him back?
Hell no! It shows my love don’t lack!
They say, so you’re loving your BETRAYER?
Yes, my poetry’s like a long-form prayer
You are really crazy, you are really nuts!
I tell them, I know…I’ve got some guts!
But you should feel mad and sad and blue
You know you can’t have him, his love’s NOT for you
I tell them love is for everyone
And then they look at me stunned!
But you’re selfish to hang on
He can’t love you back in a song
I tell them I don’t care about romance
I don’t even care that I don’t stand a chance
Then they shake their heads in disbelief
Because surely loving her enemies gives her grief
But really, I’m laughing inside
Because my love has not died
I won’t tell a lie and I won’t try to hide
In him I cannot confide
I let it go to fly, sigh, and that is how I try
Certainly, I’ll walk beside him in my mind
