I am, I am

I can’t believe the words your written
What makes you think your smart
How dare you judge this life of mine
Was straight right from the start

I never was to meet you
What is it that you think
This is just my chat line
I’m not desperate as you think

If you think you’ve got me figured
I’ll tell you that your wrong
You need to walk a mile as me
Before you sing my song

Don’t tell me about the 90%
Don’t judge me by your rules
I will be me, and always me
Not someone else’s fool.

You think you know about me
I wish I knew the same
You’ve never even met me
You only know my name. 

You’ve hurt me with your judgment
With your “think about it” tone
I thought I had a chat mate
But I’m wrong, I stand alone.

We flirted and we had some fun
And lots of time we passed
With jokes and stories 
And things gone wrong
And travels in the past

But now I want to sit right back
And close those lines again
Those tentative lines that I let out
To reach the land of song

I just feel so let down again
By judgment from your kind
You seem to think my world is free
I tell you I need time

My being is a big dark place
Too sensitive I may be
I struggle with my very life
To feel my soul be free

I used to trust the whole wide world
All roses I did see
But I’ve learnt it’s full a big sharp thorns
That rip the flesh off me

I’m going now, for what its worth
I did enjoy our chats
Got things to do and places to go
And find out were I’m at.
