Without A Trace Of Doubt In My Mind

Updated on June 29, 2015

Alanis Morissette - Uninvited (City of Angels Sndtrk)


You act like you know me so well
Just a few simple clicks of your mouse
Is all that it took
You read about me all the time
So must know everything
But you aren't worthy enough
To know everything
The real me
The person only certain people are allowed to see
You haven't earned that right
Your judgments and miscalculations
Made me realize that
I feel as if I am married to my ex again
And I refuse to go down that road again
You think I don't understand
I see more than you
Feel more than you
Taste and savour more than you
And you think I don't
Oh well
Only time will tell
Cuz you say you know me so well
Time ticks on and on
But, I will never really respond
“Gather ye rosebuds while ye may”
I used to care about every word you had to say
Now I don't
My responses are dull
Mean everything to you
And nothing to me
They aren't really responses at all
Because I choose to no longer
Respond to you
To your ignorance
But, do what you must
Entertain the idea that you are
Still interesting
Outside of the social media
Ignorance holds onto many friends
But I'm your favorite foe
My soft spoken words to you
Come like a thunderstorm in your mind
They are a constant ringing in your ears
But, you love it
Everything is so loud
Stop it
Make it stop
You understand my heart
You understand nothing
So loud
Crazy girl, please
Make it stop
I'll do anything
You've done enough already
So I'm gonna do nothing
I love in a way
I can never make you understand
You'll always judge until it hits you
Like a ton of bricks
Sit down
Shut up
And listen
It's like
I'm talking to a forgotten soul
A zombie
All you can ever understand
All I can ever give you
Is what you see on a screen
That's all you deserve
Timeless chatter
Just words
Jibber jabber
They mean nothing to me
Funny how they used to mean everything
Not a word you say disrupts my concentration
Now every time you respond
You'll wonder how much they really mean
To me
I'm dangerous you say
Girl, you have no idea
The mind is a dangerous thing to waste
You actually believe
I am hurting the only man I have ever loved
Please, girl
You understand nothing
I'm flattered by this obsessive hold
You think you have on me
My love is blinded
By the control
You have on him
I will tell him
Warn him of your venomous words
Spoken to sound so sweet
You're a great actress, girl
So sweet and innocent
Mark David Chapman
Was the exact same way
But your day will come, girl
When you behold his true feelings
Nope, you'll see
What he truly feels for me
Words he's only said to me
Words I will never tell
But, I know them so well
Yes, there is that matter
There is still order
But now I hold you in contempt
Take this how you wish
Drink it straight
Or mix it up for all to see
Drink it slowly
That's right
Take it slow, baby
Take it real nice
That's it
You like it
Swallow it good
Yeah, baby
That's what I like
Drink it down, my love
Drink it good to the last drop
All done

      Thanks. I've been writing poetry since high school, but I learned more about the true meaning of my poetry in 2002. Thanks for following me as well. I'm looking forward to reading more of your hubs.
