"Why So Far?"

-

I sit somewhere

And you sit somewhere else

This is how it's going to be

__for the rest of my time on Earth

____I suppose

And all I can say is

__"at least I'm not using?"

Wow!

What a bullshit life to be living!

The world ends every week

And every week I am less and less to you

As you sit further and further away

I shouldn't have to depend on you

But who else do I have

__to write this way about?

My brain is warped

__with thoughts of how it should be

But it'll never be

__how it should be

I yearn for a replacement

Why I haven't found one

__I don't know

I only know you turned my life

__into a living Hell

Now my heart shatters

__with every thought of us

And now you're bikeless

__so I know it's time to move on

But move onto who?

There's nobody new
