You Need To Know


I may not know where i'm going to
I didn't like the things that you have put me through
Listen to what I'm telling you
you need to know
so understand, that what i'm looking for
is a life ahead me, where i can enjoy,
the finer things and many more
you already know that

I stood alone in a previous time
Just your presence paralyzes me and overwhelms my mind
I knew what I wanted and I was going break free
Life had answered the question that had once bothered me

I may not know what you are going through
i didn't like the things that you have tried to put me through
Hear what i'm telling you?
you need to know

When looking back on all you've planned
The idea of being more than a friend went straight to your head
didn't notice but it wouldn't take long to finally see
I said no to the question that you had asked of me

I may not of known where this was headed to
i didn't like what you were trying to put me through
i'm telling you, you need to know
You didn't get, what you were looking for
I protected my heart because i knew for sure
just what you wanted i couldn't ignore
signs you've shown me and furthermore
you need to know

You now text my phone
Tell me being just friends isn't good enough
You can't spend another moment of your life alone

I don't know what you're going through
Do you like the hell you try and put me through
Is what i'm asking you
because, i don't know
Understand, that what i'm looking for
is a life ahead me where i can enjoy
the finer things and many more
you need to know

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Vaughan

They are all gone into the world of light!
And I alone sit ling'ring here;
Their very memory is fair and bright,
And my sad thoughts doth clear.
