all the things i could have done

all the things i could have done

A Poem by Jmsavestheday

here's a little ditty about making the same mistakes over and over again


I could have written a song about you, Baby
something to suit your whisky soul
I could have written a song about you Whisky
something to heat my chilly veins
I could have written a song about you Winter

how you keep me locked inside

shut up tight

miles of white


I could have been angry, Baby

could have bastardized and blamed you

I could have accepted you Blame

taken responsibility for my flaws

I could have forgiven you, Human

how you've stumbled, risen again

the things you've done

hurt you've run from


I should have left it as it was, Baby

didn't have to force your hand

should have held you, Hand

palm to palm connected and secure

I shouldn't have turned on you Security

who was I

to expect more

now I'm lonely like before
