They didn’t see it

this is how i measure all the men i have come close to loving after you

this is how i measure 

all the men i have come

close to loving after you

i pulled down many walls for them

but they didn’t see it

each one of them said  i was

trapped inside my memory

of you

they didn’t see it 

how i tried each day

to not look for you in them

they didn’t see it

how hard it was to stop 

you from dancing

in my eyes whenever

 i saw them

they didn’t see it

how i tried not to mention 

your name when i wanted

 to call them because my 

my lips were still familiar with yours

this is how i measure

all the men i have come 

close to loving after you

they didn’t see it

and i couldn’t show them 

maybe

i just didn’t how.
