did not want this

oh she didn’t know

she did not want this

& oh that would never do

& I waited hands arms open

while I tried

to bring my ships

all the way home

to you

she did not know

she was cutting swathes

through what we could

find in the night to do

she did not want this

& oh that would never do

& my heart was breaking

as I was closing the door

saying I had to go

for what I thought was love

became just another exercise

in only one person trying

while the other got to say no
