Not Guilty

We were both victim to a crime that held us hostage

A crime that only one of us served a sentence

A crime that changed us forever

But we never had forever because it ended before it started and you were unforgiving

You couldn’t accept me even after the charges were dropped

My record was clean but the judgement left me forever guilty

Like a walking felon without given a second chance at life

But you see, i was innocent

I was framed

You became an accessory to the crime

And i confessed

I confessed my truth and my innocence

You heard my testimony on the stand

I was hurt and ashamed

Locked up and in cuffs

But i realized you couldn’t trust

Because the last Bonnie to your Clyde already has you in a cell

Your brain on solitary confinement

Your heart in prison

It was a misdemeanor but the impact left you frozen forever

Frozen from the world and letting anyone in

And you weren’t willing to do your community service

You know, clean up the community streets in your brain

Get clear of the PTSD

Do the time, do the healing to your soul

But once you get up in jail they say you’re changed forever

I knew it, i know reality

But i wouldn’t let up until you said it

And now that you said it

That phone call from jail, save it

My lawyer just called and said I’m free

I’m innocent

Peace.

UNCONDITIONAL

I want love unconditional

Love that never expires

Through the arguments

Through the misunderstandings

Love through communication

Don’t ever stop getting to know me

Don’t ever give up on us

Keep reinventing our love

Keep showing me the reason we fell

Love past the excuses

To the mars and saturn

Through headaches and meltdowns

Prove to me that exists

Prove that you give a shit

Lets live everyday in abundance like its our last

Lets say fuck the past

Give me all the things you want a man to give to our future daughter some day

Love in all forms

Give me love unconditional

Fearless, Braggy, Trusting love

Best friend, you are my love

Love me unconditional and i will love until i die

Love until i fly

Unconditional
