I gave you a ring but you didn’t answer
Probably because you weren’t sure yet
Because you’d loss so many chess games you
Remembered you never knew how to play
You were a boy play.
You play so much boy.
When you undid reason because you found something better to do
I knew that you weren’t my best friend…
But you were my hand in
The cookie jar cabinet locked where my hand shouldn’t have been in
I gave you a ring but you just didn’t answer and
Then I text you please damn you
but your lies were teardrops of wine
and I didn’t have any proof yet
even though my eyes were so wet my heart didn’t need any proof
you gave me a ring but I swear I couldn’t answer
because it’s all a timed guessing game
and I didn’t wanna be the weaker link
it was easier to pretend you weren’t cheating on me
when the reality was as stiff as gambling the rent
if you gave me a ring I should have said
hello on the phone… or marveled at my left hand
but instead I stared at the blank page and rambled about why my heart wants to suffocate my mind with the all-white featherdown comforter I just bought from target.
