A Poem by Erin Adams
"

.

"

When you're here, I wanna be gone.

I don't wanna sit and watch you,

Wishing I was some where else.

 

 

When you speak, It make's me wanna run.

I just gotta get away,

As far away as I can get,

From you.

 

Don't you see?

Things aren't what they seem to be,

I'm not who you think I am.

I pretend,

And you believe I can,

Give you what you want from me.

 

When you're near, I wanna be far.

I don't wanna feel your touch,

Dreaming you were someone else.

 

When you lie, it makes me want to scream.

I just want to end the game,

Stop this fight and walk away,

From you.

 

Don't you see?

Things aren't what they seem to be,

I'm not who you think I am.

I pretend,

And you believe I can;

Give you what you want from me,

 

But I can't.

Featured Review

I like the chemistry within this poem--it's very gritty, and to me felt like someone fighting to break free from a bad relationship. Sometimes the chemistry between a person is more friction than love, and you did a great job of bringing another dimension to relationships. Just curious--what kind of music do you write lyrics for? To me, this reminds me alot of a Lisa Loeb ballad??

A poem without a title is like a child without a name: you can call it whatever you want, but no two people will call it the same thing. Any suggestions from other readers?

This one really speaks to me. There's raw emotion in here and I think it would be a wonderful song. It could be ballad, or sung with a little bit of rock..(think Kelly Clarkson and "Never Again".)
