Substitution

You’re just a substitution.
A momentary pleasure.
A temporary distraction.
An ego boost and measure.

I’m sorry if that hurts you,
I say it how I see:
I’m only here to use you
And give you none of me.

I agree with AlwaysWhy, I love the bluntness of it. It's a great poem

I love this. So much emotion and blunt honesty behind the whole thing. It's short, bitter, and absolutely beautiful.
