I have another poem for y’all today and truly, I wish I could just read it to you! I wish that you could hear it the way that I hear it … “Loyal” sounds a little like “royals” from the song by Lorde. Read it like that. And, the rest, I kinda hear in Taylor Swifts voice. Read it in Taylor’s soft, poet voice. That’s no problem right? Wink, wink. You got it!

Loyal

Loyal 

I used to say

And you kept me on lockdown

Loyal

I used to say 

And the fault was never yours 

Loyal

They used to say

As it it were a good thing

But in your eyes, you always knew

I could never be 

Loyal like you 

Rush 

It feels so good 

To not be good today 

Rush

I loved you 

But I didn’t understand you 

Rush

You loved me 

But you couldn’t always stand me 

Rush

People always change

They can’t stay the same 

Gray 

It’s how I always saw it

Wrong

It’s how you always felt it

And the spring still disappeared 

And flowers fell away

And in the morning light

We’re still friends today 

Loyal 

Just like we’ve always been…
