Not Me

spectacles-1398424__340I’m not who you think I am

Was never whom you thought I was

I couldn’t play the part

That you needed me to just because

I’m not one to be cornered

Nor one to be tamed

Won’t ever be captured

On a pedestal I can’t remain

I’m much too independent

Unwilling to settle down

Too much a free spirit

Anything more I’d drown

It pains me to hurt you

An illusion I cannot be

Some lucky woman will capture your heart

But that woman just isn’t me

You fell in love with a shadow

In shades and hues unreal

I can’t reciprocate actions, words

Or feelings I do not feel

You see me through a veil

Blind to imperfections and scars

Looking through rose-colored glasses

With your head too high in the stars

I will always be haunted

By words I couldn’t say

You deserve so much better

Out of love I couldn’t stay

I know it hurts like hell

But in time you’ll heal

And you’ll find someone else

Who’s worthy of you for real
