You Can't Have Me

You know you can't have me

I was sold

when you turned

some years old.

Always knew you couldn't have me

its just

you're not

something that I've got.

I'm cheaper than you think

but you can't afford me

with my love

as soft as gold.

That's assuming you might want me

though I was owned

in these

second-hand clothes.

Never need

to free me

because I'm

not yours to give.

You know you can't

have it all unless

you stay as long

as you can live.

Though my heart

won't let you go, these hands

have always

followed your commands.

my mind

doesn't realize

that my eyes can

have seen the promised lands.
