never mind that (triolet challenge)

"Never mind that, it's over", I'd say

This was when I felt my leg about to bounce and my lip quiver

I was waiting for the strength to talk about it but I never saw that day

"Never mind that, it's over", I'd say

How easy it rolled off my tongue and how easy it was to wait

When the conversation turned that way and I heard that trigger

"Never mind that, it's over", I'd say

This was when I felt my leg about to bounce and my lip quiver
