i wrote these lyrics this weekend...i need to set them to music...they're not based on anything in particular, but kind of a composite of stuff, a composite of people... anyway, i like these lyrics. stuff like this was kind of the purpose of this blog anyway...i started this blog as a place to post poetic fragments and full writings. it has kind of degraded to mostly a place where i rant about my days (when i started this blog, i had another blog where i ranted about my days...it was under a pseudonym...but i stopped that blog when i feel like i put too much information about a certain...incident.) anyway...an untitled glob of words.

you overheard me talk about what happened yesteryear
thought you were a friend of a friend
i answered when you asked if i'd describe a thing or two
but your interrogation had no end

you said you're so sorry
it must be so hard
a friend of your sister's
it happened to her
i try to change topics
you keep fawning on
as if that one thing defines me

just know that i'm flattered
that you told me you care
won't you please ignore me
the burden of sympathy
is too much to bear
won't you please ignore me
yes it all happened
it was my fault i shared
won't you please ignore me
but it's irrelevant now
and i'm not dwelling there
won't you please ignore me

you want to be the knight who saves this damsel in distress
there's no one here you need to defend
you'd have done me better of you never heard a thing
and concentrated on the life at hand

you said you're so sorry
it must be so hard
a friend of your sister's
it happened to her
i try to change topics
you keep fawning on
as if that one thing defines me

just know that i'm flattered
that you told me you care
won't you please ignore me
the burden of sympathy
is too much to bear
won't you please ignore me
yes it all happened
it was my fault i shared
won't you please ignore me
but it's irrelevant now
and i'm not dwelling there
won't you please ignore me
