taken from my book, "Dominance Issues"

Still To Come


Just more love still to come

And it's probably gonna be one-way still

I'll never get love returned to me

"But why would" I "even bother to fall in love?"

__you ask?

Maybe not being loved back is pointless

But I need some one to complain about

I specialize in heartache

And if no one is breaking my heart

My writing becomes cheesy

And corny


And lame

Why would I wanna write so positive

__that it reads like crap?

I've been in love before in actual relationships

And they've all been written out very poorly

It sickens me to write all lovey-dovey

__with no problem to tackle

A love without a twist turns every line into shit

So fuck it

Break my heart

Because I know you're all going to

And I'll use it

__for a better verse

I agree, you need a muse to twist your guts. But they always come with a price!
