What Moves You

Pour out the words

Show me the heart

Show me what moves you to say

Or be silent

Let me be the one that makes you speak

Or be silent

What makes us run to people

Only to realize we hate them

Being close to them, our faces reflecting

Back on ourselves

We realize we hate ourselves, and the pain

Is too great to bear

Lovers and faux lovers alike wear masks

To protect the truth of their identity

Even if you have someone, you’re searching

Wondering what new there is learn of them

Or if there is anything to learn

If you don’t have someone, you search

Not only for that person but yourself as well

Determining whether it is you or fate

That keeps you from being loved

I thought I was in one group

Recently discovered I belonged to another

Now I’m sure I belong to neither

Because I don’t even know what love is

To know what it isn’t
