Insult to Greatest Injury


I never thought this would be true
I never thought this day would come so soon
I never thought I would look at the calendar and see it so
Out of the bountiful friends I once had
I'm only down to a handful
Out of the many people I've held close
ones I thought would never change
here it is a new season
and they're changing like the leaves
Adryanna
I can't say I know what's going on
I cab't say I know what went wrong
cause I don't really know
but it was my mistake
my mistake for believing
I could run, I could run
run away from everything
run away from you
run away from our growing empty space
and return like the snap of a finger
and just like that, find you running back into my arms
I guess the blow to the head caused me to forget
forget distance hates me, hates you
forget that you get lonely too
forget..
but I guess she forgot that I said
I wanted no one else, no else but her
I said it in love letter
I said it, I said it
I promised nothing more but to be the best
but here I stand in line as second best once again
Does my cycle ever end
And to reclaim my place in line
I have to say...
but how many times have I said the things I need to say
Too many count, too many days too late
So all I'm good for is a day late friend
So all I'm good for is a loser in disguise
No, I'm a loser on the outside
I thought things would change this year
or so I thought
I thought I was more than a hopeless romantic
well so I thought
I thought I was...
but no...
All I'm good for is a place holder
All I'm good for is holding someone else's place in line
All I'm good for is a doormat to walk all over
while I wear is a t-shirt that says day late friend

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
