I've Had Enough
 
I've had enough
of words and games.
I don't think I know you,
I can't forget your name.
Your eyes are clear,
the way is strange.
The light's in the hallway
if you forget your way.
 
You were here to be only
what you wanted anyway.
You were sad to be sorry,
you were sorry everyday.
You were here to be loved,
but love's trickled away
from your eyes.
 
I tell myself
I'm least of all to blame.
For these words of my choosing,
for my rules that make the game.
But, my eyes are clear,
I can see the way is strange.
Through the dark of the hallway
that echoes back your name.
 
I was here to be only
what I wanted anyway.
I was sad to be sorry,
I was sorry everyday.
I was here to be loved,
but love's trickled away
from my eyes.
