She Gave Me A Pen

I use it to bare purpose, in a life where lights aren't as bright 
as she would like them to be,...good days are catergorized 
as long naps and "chick flicks" that tell stories of a love 
aged, even though innocense is seen as the plot,...sometimes 
she doesn't wanna speak of her plight, so smiley faces  
come across to hide what's really inside,...I know she's  
hurting, and she knows that I'm hurting, but we both rather 
talk about our friends instead,...for their lives are much 
sillier than ours, and some days laughs are hard to come by,  
so I take this pen with green ink in it and try to write lines in the 
sky,...Being a romantic is hard when I'm hopeless and she's 
hopeful that I just let my feelings for her subside,...I ask her 
why?, I believe this pen with green ink can make you happy,  
but she sees it as a dream, kinda like when art reflects life,... 
I guess you can never comprehend the depths that one is  
willing to go to make themselves invisible, but she's anything 
but to me,...I see it as a privledge to write with this pen, with 
this green ink, on this paper, that I've found in a pad,...I use  
it to bare purpose, to write lines in the sky, that might spell 
out her name,...she gave me a pen, I gave her a dream, so 
I'm guessing the green ink is where we meet in-between,...
