Lower

By
I've been a simple man,
Had no elaborate plans.
You f***ed them up cause you can.
Then all the drama began.

You made the bad even worse;
Turned my love into a curse.
You broke me up with each verse,
Now this feeling's so perverse.

A part of me has just died.
Your lips moving to the side.
Why did you leave me denied,
When fantasies could collide?

...But it's fine...

Cause I know that you need
Someone better than me,
But you won't find them soon;
You can take that from me.

You're just wandering around,
Thinking that you are free.
But you're not.
You're, in fact,
Even lower than me.

My eyes are now weeping blood,
As I get dragged through the mud.
You stand there smoking a butt,
Soon I'll drown you like a flood.

You and I have different tastes,
But one thing will stay the same.
Both of us will still proclaim
The other deserves the blame.

A part of me has just died.
Your lips moving to the side.
Why did you leave me denied,
When fantasies could collide?

...But it's fine...

Cause I know that you need
Someone better than me,
But you won't find them soon;
You can take that from me.

You're just wandering around,
Thinking that you are free.
But you're not.
You're, in fact,
Even lower than me.

I look at you, and what you do.
You'll never look at me the same.
I try to be a better me,
But you will never see that.

I wish I could give up.

Cause I know that you need
Someone better than me,
But you won't find them soon;
You can take that from me.

You're just wandering around,
Thinking that you are free.
But you're not.
You're, in fact,
Even lower than me.

that was nice and i love your rhyming and it seemed almost song-like with the repetition. i really like those repeated stanzas (esp the one starting with "You're just wandering around" i love love LOVE that!! the last line was a lovely surprise) but you never really do explain why she's lower than you. is the part where she'll drown in your blood it? even so, it's not very strong but with maybe a few added stanzas it'd be great (:
