I’ve never been too good at compromise
But something in me says that
Your offer doesn’t sound right
While you’re twirling your mustache
And tying me to the train tracks
Asking for my heart in return for lies
You’re monopolizing me
Roll the dice and move on to conquer more of
My life my world and my mind
You’re monopolizing me
And I don’t know how to break free
There’s nobody around to punish you for cheating
This time it’s all on me
Oh I won’t be your monopoly
Your paper love and dishonest property won’t
Take you too much farther
One day you’re gonna find yourself
Locked away while I’m
Home free
I’ll collect my senses while you move out of my way
Don’t even bother begging me to stay
I can hear it in your voice I can see it on your face
You don’t care about me
All you want is to own things
You’re monopolizing me
Roll the dice and move on to conquer more of
My life my world and my mind
You’re monopolizing me
And I don’t know how to break free
There’s nobody around to punish you for cheating
This time it’s all on me
Oh I won’t be your monopoly

A rose and a flame, are just the same.

A great poem. Your poetry is a work of art.

Hey, you're welcome :) Keep writing. I just joined the site (a friend told me to join) and so far, I've seen nothing but great works, yours being one of the best so far. I was wondering, if you could read one of mine, and tell me what you think, if you have the time :) Thank you so much! Keep up the good work! :D
