Fuck This Tennis Game

-

She tends to love me not

Oh

Damned

Well

I'm gonna drop her "like a fly"

Not

Look

Back

"All is" lost

"All is gone"

So what?

"Move along"

I could relieve myself from her

She is a piece of work

Is she and all her avoidance

__all

____that God could offer?

I refuse to wreck my mind

Trying to think her into my life

The ball flew out of bounds

What was I supposed to do?

Try and play on it?

Fuck this tennis game

I'ma "let go"

And be on my way

Why would I wanna waste effort on her?

Forget it

I give up

She can find somebody else to tease

With pointless dreams

__that go nowhere

I refuse to do anything to try

__to persuade her into my world

She can continue to twirl her baton

And march on out of the way

Between me

And who I'm really meant to be with

'Cause she obviously ain't it

It's not thee end of the world

She's just a girl

Whom I'm glad I don't know

She is poison to my life

My love for her must end

As fine as she is

She acts like she doesn't even want to get fucked

So fuck her

I'm done

She's not the right one to love

I'll punish myself no more

Her body will remain undiscovered by me

She's not worth the risk of rejection

I'd rather have a bullet thru my head

Than be turned down

__one more fuckin' time

I've had it with failure

I'd fed up with not succeeding

I still haven't healed for the last disaster

Why would I chance another?

I'll fall flat and rest my weary head

On my pillow

And dream again
