 From the Heart Through the Pen

If The Shoe Fits

There's plenty of fish in the sea
I've never been quite the fisherman
I mean, I can't even swim
Guess this explains all the guppies
With me and the shallow end I'm in
Don't get me wrong
I've had a few good bites
But just like timing
I guess my lines
Just weren't right
So forgive me, not for finding something good
But for holding on real tight
Squeezed so hard
Yup, right out of my grip
What a slippery lil …..
Hey, don't get mad if the shoe fits
Embrace it cause we can't replace it...I mean
That glass slipper is one of a kind
Meant for the one who would blow my mind
We were having a blast when the clock struck nine
The all of sudden, seconds to midnight
You were so tuned into the time
As if you were about to go
From riches to rags
Out of my life just that fast
You kept that slipper
So there will be no search party
All I have are these memories
To remind
Of how I would like to rewind the hourglass
When we were together
Could no one handle our class
Been so long since I tasted you
Now all that lingers are sour patch
The kind we used to get at the movies
(Smile) we watched so many, also I
Remember the conversations
We had and how you moved me
Hours catching up on the phone
Stock in Verizon we should've owned
The strength and the bond
I guess we've outgrown
I look on your side of the bed
You used to call this home
I close my eyes, wishing you sweet dreams
Maybe I'll be in them creating x-rated scenes
Forever we go on it seems…until
Alas I'm interrupted by the morn
A brand new day, a brand new dawn
I guess this is me moving on
My way back to the sea
Same rod, same lines
Different timing… a bit more early
A worm in search of a certain fish
Seems like there's a storm
Gotta lol, cause this is my norm
Maybe I'll luck out
And God'll make lightning strike
Not once but twice
Same spot, wouldn't that be nice
Same time as my line gets snagged
What do you know, I have a bite
With a lil hope, just a glimmer
It's heavier than a guppy
Reality hits instantly
For staring back at me
Is your glass slipper
