Life is a game
Girls are the same
That's why she screams
As I dissect her dreams

She calls me a knight
But I'm really a hunter
She's lost her sight
Truly asunder

Girl's feel too much
Yet I feel too little
Playing with hearts
Gosh they're so brittle

I want a strong girl
Who can see through the mist
I say you're beautiful
Resist!

See past my words
Just see the meaning
Tower of cards
Jesus, we're leaning

I see I've just lost you
But look it's okay
You'll see through my madness...

Someday.

If you don't know what asunder means, you might want to look it up.

Also I'd find it interesting if you stated what you think this is about..

Nice flow and straight to the point. You can really hear the boredom and melancholy with women falling in love too easily. I like it very much. Add to favorites and 5/5 stars.   I hope you'll check out my work too.

At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet.

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.

A poem is never finished, only abandoned.

Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.
