Is This All?

My mediocre work of literaure. Like, dislike, it doesn't matter to me really. Song? Poem? Either way could be viewed as correct...

Sometimes I wonder if you say what you mean
I know it's not always what it seems
You never say just how you feel
So how can I ever know you're for real?

Life isn't always a selfish act
Sometimes it's finding out what you've lacked
I know I can't ever be perfect and prim
But tell me honey, could I ever win?

So tell me baby
Is this all?
You'd leave me here
And let me fall
But pick me up
To carry your dreams,
Even when I'm falling apart at the seams?

Love isn't always how it goes
It drifts other ways, though no one knows
It seems this time you went too far
Putting my heart in your broken glass jar
But tell me why it's always this
I strive for your love but I always miss
I'll try and try and try again
But no matter what it's only pain in the end

So tell me baby
Is this all?
You'd leave me here
And let me fall
But pick me up
To carry your dreams,
Even when I'm falling apart at the seams?

So tell me baby
Can this be it?
Are you going to just up and quit?
If I'm the only one who gives a damn,

Then the lion could never lay down with the lamb

The End
