No You Didn’t

No You Didn't

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

About bognetta

Love has been so much more powerful than other people's control. I think it's all love, but sometimes it doesn't feel like love. That is because so many people are defensive, protective, and do not care to trust in that four letter word...love!
