Done acting cool

Let’s not act like we’re on a movie screen.
There are no points for coy lines or clever scenes.
Let’s not act like we have something to prove.
Can we just figure out if you like me, and I like you?

Can we stop trying to be so calculated about it?
Can you just let me know if you want it or not?
I guess since you haven’t made a move that should speak,
Should I read your silence as the answer I haven’t got?

Or I guess I can swallow my pride and just ask.
Just you and I, it’s hard to get that kind of time.
Whatever I’m done playing games, done being a fool.
I’m done trying to act so proud or be so cool.

So here it goes, let’s see how this ends?
Let’s see how broken my heart and pride will get.
Boys are stupid and so are my feelings I’ll pledge until,
Until that one time when that one guy stays…& who knows? maybe you will.

Modern Dragons Tonight

Sometimes my heart lives in the clouds.
But it’s a blurry distant view of the ground.
I live in the hopes, ambitions, and wishes that take flight,
but it’s dark, lonely, and confusing at night.
Sometimes I lie under bristling leaves and imagine
The excitement and wonder of what it would be to be a dragon.
To breathe passion and fire, and to cut through the skies,
To be fierce, fearless, and to fill every moment with life.
Sometimes, I walk around and pretend I’m happy when I’m not.
I can put on this innocent smile, so no one can see how bad it’s got.
I’ll laugh and I’ll ask questions flirt and charm,
but at the end of the day, I can hold on to no arm.
Sometimes I don’t want to admit how lonely my heart feels.
I’ll deny it and I’ll laugh, and pretend it’s all healed.
So I’ll withdraw into memories and remind my heart not to care.
not get my hopes up, but it’s too late, I’m already there.
He caught my eye. it’s like a dragon’s breathe.
he cut through my skepticism, and I’m fighting with all I have left.
But I’m afraid, while he’s fearless, of heartbreak and being the fool.
And he’s just laughing and playing it all cool.
So tonight, my heart, let’s move back to the clouds
away from blurry and distant risks, that are too scary right now.
Flirt with hopes and ambitions, but don’t let that wish stay in flight.
It’s confusing, it’s wretched, it’s modern love, and a lonely night.
