Poem: Don’t (song)

(This is meant to be a song, but… Lyrics without music isn’t quite the same.)

Don’t

I never thought I’d see your face up close
when I peeked out of the crowd
there was a point in time
that you seemed more a distant cloud

Don’t forgot I’m here with you
Don’t lose hope in my support
Don’t idle by when I’m offering
to save your life just because

Those idol days, we hear a lot
We strive to reach that special spot
even if you never saw
i hoped you’d smile when I made it
seeing as I was created
through the help of your support
Never once I lost your offered hope

Don’t forget the words you said
Don’t deny the idol’s dread
Don’t give in to hardships made
the media seems worse as of late

You and I, we are tied by fate
Staring at the endless fate
of music that has come to drop
with hopping beats that never stop
the club scene takes the cake
Leaving us without much weight
yet something special we have become
since people stalk us just for fun
and pictures never seem enough
but my life is a circus I didn’t think
it would become. We are still enough.

Don’t forget we’re here together
Don’t worry about the danger
Don’t give in to temptation
life is still ours to make

I definitely would have given up
You saw me staring
and that’s enough
whenever I find you creeping
the world may be my own making
but for you
it will never be enough

Don’t worry about the present
Don’t think about the past
Don’t question our loyalty
fans aren’t easy to retract

Whatever the day will bring
it seems to be more lightning
the cloud lined paths have stolen us
falling not quite in a rut
taking the time to lose all hope
yet that may be the only thing
left that could help us begin
you haven’t lost a single thing
even if the world refuses to see
You are more than enough
and that should be enough for me
this isn’t the time to give in
so don’t give up on us
We aren’t losing out
Life stops at a traffic light
leaving us battered and bruised
the pause is worth it too

Don’t forgot I’m here with you
Don’t lose hope in my support
Don’t idle by when I’m offering
to save your life just because

Don’t forget the words you said
Don’t deny the idol’s dread
Don’t give in to hardships made
the media seems worse as of late

Don’t forget we’re here together
Don’t worry about the danger
Don’t give in to temptation
life is still ours to make

Don’t worry about the present
Don’t think about the past
Don’t question their loyalty
fans aren’t easy to retract
