You Tell Me

Tags: poetry

You tell me what it's all about because 
I don't have a clue and I doubt I ever
Will even if I try and try and I don't expect
That I will make the effort you know
So just let it go and I will let it go too
And both of us can move on with our lives.

See it doesn't mean a damned thing to me
But I know it may to you so I will attempt
To give it one more go if that is what you want
So just tell me please is that what you want
Because if it is I am willing to give it another
Try or so I say but am I lying or are you.

Lies and lies and more lies from you and me
While we circle around the real subject 
That is on our minds the one we don't speak
Of anymore because it hurts too much and the
Pain is more than I can take and more than
You can take I know because of all your tears.

They come often now like they never did 
Before the change that came over you and
Over me too we both changed for some reason
I can never understand but I still want to know
If you care at all do you care at all do you care
Because I still do I do and I can't help it I do.

But your touch is so damned soothing to me
That I will always give in like it never happened
But it did and it will and I know you will always
Remember the things I said and I will always
Remember the things you said and can we forget
Those things and forgive and forget once more.

Rocking you back and forth I caress you 
The way I used to do in the long ago times
When love was young and free and soaring
I know it can again you know it can again
It will once more if only you let it and I do
But will we ever know what it was all about.
