Knocking


You tell me that I'm too good for you
But you won't say why this is true

How do I know that this is a fact
I cannot tell by how you act
You tell me but I'm not listening

I'm sorry
I am sorry
I'm so sorry...For you

Why won't you let me climb these walls
You say your head is a maze of dark halls

How do I know that this is a fact
I cannot tell by how you act
You tell me but I'm not listening

I'm sorry
I am sorry
I'm so sorry...For you

There is a distance between us that I'm starting to feel
I know it takes a while for one's heart to heal

How do I know that this isn't an act
I don't always know what's lie or fact
I'm still knocking but you're not answering

Are you sorry
Because I'm sorry
Are you sorry because I'm sorry for you

Why won't you let me in
Would it be such a sin
I'm still here knocking but you're not answering

I wish I knew what I could say
I want to make yours a brighter day
Won't you let me in
I'm still here knocking

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
