A Poem by Kay J.

You know I know

I spent my night running
Even while I was laying next you in bed
you were lying next to me
empty words and empty thoughts
You say it's in my head

You saw me,
Caught me,
Then stored me away for later
I'm your entertainment on a rainy day

I spent the afternoon running
Running from the girl in the mirror
Running from the version of beauty you want
I'll just be bought

I come to a halt
You cement my feet to the ground
I watch you take off
I feel the chain around my neck
A rattling sound
Your shadow joined with another
You know who you are
You keep her around

Simple words have more meaning
I'm not the only one
You know I know
You keep feigning
