Pipistrelles

Poem By Paul Butters

Dancing in the rain
Or drowning in my tears
Filled with hurt and pain
I repent for all these years
Muffled by your sorrow
Cornered by your bliss
Looking forward to tomorrow
And all the shitty things I’ll miss
Humble to your anger
Taking all the hurtful words like a pro
Letting my thoughts hang upon a hanger
Silently trapped inside my pretend show
Hating me for what I’ve done
It’s understandable to me
But taking it out on everyone else to come
Is just a stupid thing I forsee
This is not the end of the world
Just the end to a fucked up tale
I couldn’t be the perfect girl
I couldn’t wear the wedding veil
Just couldn’t see the future
Involving you and me
So I had to hurt you this one time
To set this dysfunctional relationship free

This Friend

I have this friend who's just like me
but I dont call or talk to him as much as I should
but he's been there for me countlessly
and I tried to be there for him when I could.

Dancing In The Rain

Dancing in the rain
Or drowning in my tears
Filled with hurt and pain
I repent for all these years

Past Relived

I remember the days I felt lost
the days I felt my life was one big mess
the way I felt love had a high cost
and caused just too much stress

Words Could Not Express

Words could never express
Tears could not explain
I know I’ve made one big mess
And caused you nothing but heartache and pain

Let Me Know

I don’t know what to say
Or think about this anymore

Torture Time

I feel frozen in time, refusing to move ahead
cant get you off my mind, your existence i cant forget
people tell me not to cry, but thats hard for me not to do
to be strong believe me i try, but i lost a piece of me when i lost you
