 From the Heart Through the Pen

Set my standards high
Only to fall for Lo
Got back to my feet
...Sigh...just in time to watch her go
What a discovery
This thing called hind sight
The founder no doubt
Encountered a similar plight
Been searching ever since
For even just a glimpse of that familiar flame to ignite
But can only find wicks without wits
And the moment I try switching up my style
Is the moment I get these stranger than fiction dames
Say they're trying to rewrite my story
Never taking the chance to actually know me
Before they figure out
There's not only meaning to my life
But also my name
I send them packing on their clouds
Be gone from whence you came
And trust me I'm not this harsh soul
I just don't have time for you
If you're not intended to make me whole
I've been in this game called life for a while now
Ain't It Funny How
I'm still searching for someone
Who'll make my smile say wow
And my heart can finally be settled
Someone who'd say they admire my beauty
And how it's got her shaken
And I'd reply
Says the pot to the kettle
And tho that last line may seem a lil lame
Spoken to your face in that moment
Your response won't be the same
You'll be googling the meaning to my name
While I'll be joyous that somewhere in this world
Sits a quiet warrior whose breath was just taken
Who can finally say not only did he witness honor
But his love be reawakened
...Sigh...who am I kidding
Here I go again

Setting my standards high
Only to fall for Lo
