“I dedicate this to Becca”

She was there always
On the phone was all we had
She loved me more than others
She’s Becca the best girlfriend I ever had
But we had to be away from each other
Those arrangements made me sad
She lives in Missouri but we couldn’t be closer

I used to be really happy
‘Til all of that just burned away
Lost in the bottomless fire of life
But I remember her still today
You might not care about this now
but my words will irregardlessly
Blaze into this hell

What do I do now?

Remembering hurts my head
Every time I think of her I cry
Because of all the things I could’ve said
Every time I write about her I die a little inside
Constantly coming back alive
Calling her every chance I have
And that didn’t stop fate from burning away all of that
All that I have
