The Things I Never Said

I never said I wanted your heart,
but you served it on a platter
Still beating, still bleeding,
still impenetrable.

I never said I wanted love.
Those words never left my mouth.
They never touched my tongue,
and I’d have choked before I let them leave my throat.

These are the things I never said
Yet you assumed,
you thought you knew what was in my head
But these are the words,
you wanted too,
The words you wanted to believe you heard.
And I’ll deny them until the day I am dead,
because these are the words I never said.

You must have thought I’d lost my mind,
when I grabbed that string,
When I followed you blind
But you didn’t ask, and I was simply killing time.

I clinched my teeth,
and I held my breath.
Because I would never let those thoughts
crawl on your flesh.

I would never let those thoughts invade your chest,
Because these are the things I’ve never said.

Yet you assumed,
you thought you knew what was in my head
But these are the words,
you wanted too,
The words you wanted to believe you heard.
And I’ll deny them until the day I am dead,
because these are the words I never said.

We are complex human beings
and we live, we breathe, we hear, we see.
But we always want there to be
something hidden underneath.
And what we hear is changed to what we want to believe

Seeing is believing.
Hearing is deceiving.
And I’ll scream until my lungs are red.
Because these are the things I never said.

Yet you assumed,
you thought you knew what was in my head
But these are the words,
you wanted too,
The words you wanted to believe you heard.
And I’ll deny them until the day I am dead
because these are the words I never said.
