Denial is What He Calls Me

Updated on May 26, 2013

Is that your new favorite word?
Whenever I talk trash to you,
my goal is to leave your feelings hurt.
But you just joke like it's a flirt.
I guess that's just how we work.

You say that when I say "no".
Yes, there is a reason I haven't let you go,
but there's 10 reasons I won't bring you home.
Shit, I'm better off alone.

What is there for me to deny?
I haven't gotten over the days you made me cry.
I say I've grown up, but the insecurity
will make me another guy's crazy bride.
You are the only man on earth
that I feel I cannot outsmart,
and you are the last man on earth
that I will let close to my heart.

I could never put our experiences into one simple word.
I would never throw it away.
I'd just whind up digging the dirt
of our shallow grave.
What I need to dig up is proof
that I'm not playing a game.
If I did that, would you start denying me?

I'm not that brave.

Is that your new favorite word?
If I said "I hate you", would your feelings be hurt?
I'm not saying I really do, but I just wanna know
what weapon I have at my disposal
cause we both know you can easily use "denial".

      No one wants to admit the truth sometimes!

      Hi RymeOGoodSense

      There is a moment when I deny the day and see the stars flicker bright

      Another day I deny the truth and its bounds back and slaps me in the face

      I deny I’m guilt and get jail instead

      Deny my soul and get the devil instead

      What a place I am now denied

      The wild, beautiful, emotional and pure, thrilling world

      Of love, your love, your heart, your adventurous spirit

      Your strong passion , your mighty personal embrace

      So you see what I have denied myself

      A place in paradise

      Denial never accomplished anything. Time to face up to the truth.

      Sounds like you have a snake in your garden. Better kill it before it gets you.
