"No Poem" as written by Michael Peter Andrews and Inara George....
You're no poem.
Once you open your mouth
I never like what you say
A carnation
To cover your lips

When you speak I fall away
The exceptions
Are few in between
I spend time just trying to forget
Away, away, will you fall away
Let's pretend that we never met

Keep yourself within yourself
For all that you say it never gets better
In yourself within yourself
If I was you I wouldn't talk, I'd just keep dancing
If all your moves were words
And back steps were things you've denied
You've said, that's right, your dead
I'm dumb, but not deaf and blind

    General CommentA love/hate relationship. Or maybe I should say admiration/frustration love. :D

    Admiration amidst the frustrated lyrics: "If I was you, I wouldn't talk, I'd just keep dancing." Referring to this other person's happy demeanour?
    The melody itself is also conducive to feelings of admiration.

    I feel that we have a pessimist who finds an optimist - and wants to turn away and let that optimist continue in their bliss.

    The last lines are confusing to me!: "If all your moves were words, and backsteps were things you've denied you've said - that's right, you're dead. I'm dumb, but not deaf and blind."

    For all I can think of, this must be the aforementioned optimist who takes a good look at the pessimist's fears. They concur that "you're dead," but disagrees that her optimism isn't seeing/hearing/speaking no evil.

    Beautiful! For Fruits Basket (Takaya, Hana to Yume) fans, this is total KyoxTohru.
