A fool filmed in flesh

The answers were given to you for the test

You seem to fail

But what else is new

I didn't expect much

Coming from you

How much longer can you last

You seem to be trying

To stay in the past

Theres nothing left

But memories in your head

Where they should stay

Before to much is said

These choices belong to you

And I have no say

I tried to help

Even though I cause dismay

I gave you all the hints

No matter how much I was denied

I wanted you to be happy

I wanted you to be mine
