Lyrics to an (almost) Song

Not even close to a song, considering I have no musical talent. But lately I’ve been writing a lot of poetry in the form of songs (cause isn’t that essentially what songs are-poetry put to music), with a rhythm in mind. This one has a Treacherous by Taylor Swift vibe to it, if it helps at all to imagine what it could possibly become.

The penalties could be high

If I find out I was wrong

All your promises and words

Could leave me all alone

 

And honestly I don’t know how

To let anyone know me

And up until now I believed

That’s how it should be

 

Don’t fall too hard

Or tread too fast

I don’t know how

To make things last

It’s apparent I’ve never truly loved

But maybe…

I’ve learned it’s hard

For me to trust

But I’ve never felt

Quite this rush

It’s apparent I’ve never truly loved

But maybe with you…I want to

 

And please don’t disappear

Don’t turn around

Don’t leave me lying

There, cold, on the ground

 

Don’t fall too hard

Or tread too fast

I don’t know how

To make things last

It’s apparent I’ve never truly loved

But maybe…

I’ve learned it’s hard

For me to trust

But I’ve never felt

Quite this rush

It’s apparent I’ve never truly loved

But maybe with you…I want to

 

Promises could be broken

We could fall hard

Then not go anywhere far

I could turncoat

When it’s time to charge

But the biggest fear I have

Is maybe my heard doesn’t belong entirely to you

I don’t want to hurt you

 

Don’t fall too hard

Or tread too fast

I don’t know how

To make things last

It’s apparent I’ve never truly loved

But maybe…

I’ve learned it’s hard

For me to trust

But I’ve never felt

Quite this rush

It’s apparent I’ve never truly loved

But maybe with you…I want to

Maybe I want to…

Maybe I love you…

 

Update: And as far as my novel for NaNoWriMo goes…it’s not even close to being done with a few days left in the month. However, this isn’t a total loss: I was very happy that it gave me the chance and motivation to start writing one of my stories, and I hope to continue to write it.
