Small Town Favorites

I said I’d never deal in redundancy

I can never be content in repetition,

But I’m still in your arms

Still looking into your eyes

Like a scratched CD

Going over and over and over.

Now “I love you” is reversed,

A quick way out

Belligerents neutralized before blood

Casualties avoided

There is no love in war.

There are strings tied to my limbs

You’re the puppeteer

Pulling my arms around you

Despite my frown

Against my will

In bitter ignorance of my craving

To run.

I’m doing my best to fake it

But we both know I’m losing my cool.

I thought I was the girl of change 2.0

I guess I’ve become more of a prototype

And I thought you’d have changed

From the boy I saw

To the boy I knew

But you’ve gone from the boy I knew

To a violent stranger

In my heart’s clothing.

Now I cannot speak, I’ve lost my voice
I’m speechless and redundant
‘Cause I love you’s not enough,
I’m lost for words
