And Now You Know



You called me up on the phone today
It was a struggle to find the words to say
They say time can heal all the wounds
But I've been sick since before the womb
Just so you know

I'm not the one that you once knew
That lonely boy all alone in school
I've made a new life accepted it all
I embraced the name you wrote on the wall
And you know

When my father died I stole his last breath
I was addicted to lust and flirting with Meth
My first trick was a boy with your face
A suicidal thing with such a beautiful taste
And did you know

Confronted my mother about the sins of the past
Screamed at a tombstone about death too fast
Wrote a thing or two about a boy named John
Accepted the fact that most of me is wrong
Just so you know

When I needed you most you turned away
You were afraid of what others might say
So you stayed safe and I lost my home
Always scared over lonely roads I roam
And I want to know

Why all the wasted years telling lies
I know you liked me in between your thighs
Each night you might lie next to your wife
But I know you miss me and our secret life
Could you know

That in the end I'm finally doing fine
I've leveled out and reasoned the rhyme
Next to me lies a boy I call best friend
And if I had to I'd do it all over again
And now you know




I enjoy reading comments from my readers,

so if you've enjoyed reading my writing,

write a little something for me.
