Equal Adjunct


I must take some responsibility
I don’t think I was open to you loving me
My gates were warily open
And at the first twig crack, closing
So I complain and rush the waves
Because the one who always saves
Sometimes needs a friend
To have her back and hold her hand
And it seemed too good to be true
That I could love and have you love me too
So I searched for every excuse
For insincerity in you
And maybe saw it in merely shadowplay
That was the darkness of the day
And not, as it were, deceit
Just arrogance where the waters meet
And in the complicit in our fingers
I know we like different singers
But sometimes I think we’re too alike
And that was the reason for the fight
Up and down the other way
You had to go, I couldn’t stay
