REST DEAR HEART


Back to bed for a nap
Working nights is difficult
I am exhausted wish your lap
Was right here to give me salt

As you are the salt of my Earth
The spice that makes me naughty nice
When you're here you're my rebirth
As you talk and leave me thinking twice

About the jealousy I feel
About the way I want to let go
Or what is and isn't real
When I chose to let the rain flow

Down on us
As you tell me I'm a little insane
It's no way to build trust
Unless you further explain

Why you're not here right now
I cannot nap with you
Have to stay away from me somehow
To do the other things you need to do

I have work here for me
But I am too tired
Rather sit and free
These thoughts that have me wired

Every Monday
As you're sleeping at her house
It's my dead day
Feeling like a louse

As this love sucks me dry
When is it going to stay
It puts a sparkle in my eye
Then as you go to her, it goes back away

From me to her it drives me crazy
I cannot think of my practical life
When I'm worn out and lazy
You're buying groceries for you two like you're her wife

I give up sometimes
Be here to hibernate alone
Find some paper to go to rhymes
Go to bed set the alarm on my phone

Find peace in rest
Let you go
I am the best
That you wear down with her, you know.
