It's Insane To Keep Trying To Find Love


The things I do for nothing

Nothing good ever happens

I don't want anybody else

But I've hurt her

Fuck what I've said

I screwed up again

My heart is mangled up

Into a 4 piece crochet

Mocked dearly

By my own beloved

How soon 'til the hand

__of Death

Comes on me?

And who else to care

But buttons on a keyboard?

If I had a right to live

I don't now

Still, I have to move on

I hurt May

I hurt Jane

Nobody else

Will come my way

How me not giving a shit

Will ever happen

Is still impossible to me

Other work on discovering

__a new face

____in the mirror

______has yet to play

________a part on my life

Like winded tails

And spinning wails

It's off my head

I'm much too pissed off

To sleep right "at all"

On tonight

This darkened betrayal

That I can only blame

__myself for

I will know nothing

I will sink slow

__into the light

Held onto by only

__what I believe

Well, is what I believe

__even right?

I cannot conquer

__this mistake

I have too much going for me


If it's "O.K."

She sure has a way

Of showing it

And if my bruises

Are her bruises too

What can I do

To undo?
