Too Much

Has anyone told you you’re annoying?
Because I am certain that you are.
Has anyone told you to leave?
I’d love if you went far.
Has anyone told you your voice
is just too much to hear?
When you are around me,
one thing is very clear.

I’d love nothing more than to tell you
that your noise is just too much
but I’d rather just be sleeping
and dreaming of mice and such.

I Would

I’d buy you a drink
if I knew you wouldn’t throw it in my face.
I’d take you home
if I knew we wouldn’t regret it in the morn.
I’d give you my number
if I thought there was a chance you’d call.
I’d give you my heart
if I thought you’d leave her for me.

Brush Off

Hey! I thought that was you.
How about a coffee?
Maybe two?

Hey! I’ve been meaning to call.
It’s just, well you know,
life and all.

No worries, I get it.
Are you busy tonight?

No, not really,
but I’ve got an early flight.

I hear ya,
don’t worry,
perhaps another
time?

Sure,
I’ll see ya,
when our love,
isn’t a crime.

Dig

Money’s always been tight,
I just thought you knew.
But the truth is, dear,
I can’t imagine a world without you.
The lies I’ve told
were all born of love
and the mess I’ve made
is not one to rise above.
The thing about is,
well, it’s that once you start to dig,
there’s nowhere to go
but down.

Cleaning Day

“Your box is clean!”
You scream with glee
as if somehow
this matters to me.

I don’t need to know
when you complete a task.
If I wanted an update,
I’d simply ask.

All celebrations aside
you really shouldn’t be
so excited and chipper
that you just cleaned pee.

From Afar

You still don’t know
how I love you from afar
and wish for so much more
than just the friends we are.

I’ll keep it that way
for as long as I can
since admitting my love
is more than I could stand.

Who cares if it means
that lonely is how I’ll be
as long the smile on your face
is all that I can see.

Even if you read this
it will be hard to know
since affection is one thing
I will never be able to show.
