fool’s gold

fools goldCold coffee

Blasted love songs fade to heartbreak

Hearts ache

Didn’t realize everything I thought would turn up fake

But looking back

You were on a straight plane the whole ride here

You never pretended to give more than you had

But those eyes told me different

Here I was falling for a best friend

Thinking despite your lack of effort, your care would manifest in the end

I shouldn’t be surprised

That the scissors that come with the rock and paper

Would cut so deep

That there’d come a day I’d want a refund

For all the wasted minutes dreaming about you while you just sleep

But who ever knew that

Fool’s gold

Could shine so bright

And who ever knew

That even when your cards fold

You’d still yearn a little

For that kiss goodnight
