Words I Never Said


I think I said I love you too early;

But who cares? I said it ‘cos I meant it

Maybe I don’t deserve you; maybe I do,

But I know either way; my heart won’t stay idle

Maybe I never thought I’d ever feel like this again;

Maybe I knew so much feeling could only end in pain,

Maybe I should have told you; trusted you with my fears;

They say even with tears in your eyes, you should still see clear

Maybe I did spend too much time talking about my fears;

Talked about them so much you started to hear

Maybe I should have just told you how I really felt;

But I was afraid of what I was feeling; tied with a lipstick belt

Maybe I said ‘I’m sorry’ too often; maybe I didn’t say enough;

Maybe I said it too late to stop the hurt,

Maybe I was trying to put out the fire after the eggs were burnt;

Maybe I should be singing ‘Goodbye My Lover’; like James Blunt

Maybe I shouldn’t have said what I did; maybe I should have,

Maybe I should have shrugged at your hurt and said ‘too bad’

But I know I said what I did because I meant it

But then again; does that make me right; knowing you’d resent it?

I’m from that school where it’s actions over words;

That’s why I showed – not tell you how happy you made me

Or maybe I said it; but no more than once;

And I stopped ‘cos you looked at me like I was crazy

They say good things don’t last; I believe it

We can part if we have to; but not like this,

Can we hit the reset button and start again; please

Like I just ran into you and said ‘hi, my name is…’

Words I Never Said


And a Happy New Year to Moi!

      • Okay. If you don’t, I’ll tell you. I like it. I think you have to say it to whoever it is.

  6. Beautiful piece. Somehow it speaks to everyone who reads it in various ways. All it needs is a beat and a rhythm and we’ve got a hit love song. What say you sir?
