The Topic Is You


If I never take the time to love you

I may as well sit here in boredom

For, what else

__or who else

Is there to write about?

I'm using you worse

Maybe this really is mutual

Maybe I can't continue to blame you

You're just a subject

That's all women ever want to be for me

They don't wanna be my real friend

They just wanna keep their distance

And I'm letting them

Just so I can have some words

__to form

____and explore

______what I can't ignore


I can't ignore you

I can't ignore how you have to

__be asked a question

____in order for you to text me back

I can't ignore how

__I never have the right to call

Just because of what you

__see me as

So fuck this shit

I won't call you ass

Fuck this shit

I won't text your ass

I hope you realize what

__you're doing to me

____hanging around

And stop coming around

Just so I wouldn't have

__to see your ass

But I can't get you to go

And I have no more friends

Fuck this whole world

I'm glad it rained this weekend
