Silver Chain
I didn't know she meant that much
Precious sterling, delicate dangling
Did I underestimate her flirtatious ways?
Or maybe I just thought too highly of myself

So I'll trudge that line between confession and confusion
With the memories of your
Ghosts haunting me
Taunting me
Their presence is alluring to you
And I feel like nothing to you
Yet you still tell me I'm special

And I try not to hover
I fall back into the crowd
You never seemed to notice
But I always feel so drawn to you

And I honestly didn't know you two were so close
Precious sterling, delicate dangling
Somewhere did you forget about me?
Unworthy of sentimentality
And her silver chain is choking -
Me out
Her silver chain is killing me -
Inside.

Thanks Denise. I was really bitter when I wrote it. It was theraputic though, 'cuz now I'm not so. Thanx again for reading.

Pattie, this is great, I myself always find it theraputic to write when I am bitter or in any down mood as well.
