Status: Finished  |  Genre: Romance  |  House: Booksie Classic

Rated R for adult content and concepts. A song about a guy I had feelings for, who was cheating on me, and who was more attracted to openly promiscuous women. Comment please, feedback's always appreciated. Thank you

Bruises on the back of your teeth
cut your words up into rumors
that we're just here to please
you've got a talent for making other girls scream
with the lies that you've been carrying
I never thought I'd care for them

I see them shaking in your fingers like you've got something to prove
you have a girl on every finger and I've got nothing to lose

burn your cigarette out on some other girls tongue
I'd offer mine but you had it once
you broke my throat when I had to say I felt the same
I can't get out
you won't give out
you have it out for me

they love your hair, your eyes, the way you talk
I hate your lips, your lies, and the girls that you drop
they want to touch you
you want to fuck them
your hearts a time bomb
your girls an actress

I see them shaking in your fingers like you've got something to prove
you have a girl on every finger and I've got nothing to lose

burn your cigarette out on some other girls tongue
I'd offer mine but you had it once
you broke my throat when I had to say I felt the same
I can't get out
you won't give out
you have it out for me

you've got your heart set
on some other girls lungs
shaking on her pillow
while you set up your guns
your on your death bed
when she wipes off your teeth
breathing in the smoke and blood
off all your other girls knees


I see them shaking in your fingers like you've got something to prove
you have a girl on every finger and I've got nothing to lose

burn your cigarette out on some other girls tongue
I'd offer mine but you had it once
you broke my throat when I had to say I felt the same
I can't get out
you won't give out
you have it out for me

can't get out
won't you shake me out
can't get out
from this falling out and I
can't get out
you won't give up on me
I can't get out
you have it out for me

Daughter of the Moon

This is an interesting piece. I've read your intro/bio whatever u call it and found you at first a little harsh. But really your quite right. We do judge even if we don't realize it. But anyway about your poem/song, it's very good. I can see how it would be a song. Your talented.
