Spoken Word Poetry – The Exception To The Rule (Love poem about heart break, with music)


“Love, want it, but don’t need it
You’ve got to believe it” I repeat that mantra for my mental health
In the mirror when I see myself Every morning, my reflection says otherwise
Through tired and tear-soaked eyes I’m living a lie
With you I was superman, alone I’m a bad guy And hopeless
And it’s weak and pathetic and I know this I’m trying to be the best that I can but
For heart-break there ain’t no handbook They say you should love yourself
Before loving someone else But then, they’ve never met you
The exception to the rule… “Love, want it, but don’t need it
You’ve got to believe it” I repeat that mantra for my mental health
In the mirror when I see myself In better days,
Messages used to be sent both ways Now you never got a thing to say
Don’t you miss those games we played? And I know you’ll never answer that
Because I never get an answer back There just aren’t the words to describe
My pain inside and broken pride I’m trying to love myself
But my love’s all for someone else It makes no sense to cling to you
The exception to the rule… “Love, want it, but don’t need it
You’ve got to believe it” I repeat that mantra for my mental health
In the mirror when I see myself The nights are the worst,
Take pills to sleep ‘coz overthinking hurts And I hope I don’t dream
I just want some peace where I feel no things I’ve taken to drinking wine
To ease these thoughts that plague my mind And I know that ain’t the way to go
But it’s a place I can hide for a week or so Maybe there I’ll find myself
Or wake up drunk being someone else I lost it all when I lost you
The exception to the rule… “Love, want it, but don’t need it
You’ve got to believe it” I repeat that mantra for my mental health
In the mirror when I see myself “Love, want it, but don’t need it
You’ve got to believe it” I repeat that mantra for my mental health
In the mirror when I see myself
