I use the word "fucking" a few times among the poem. Please, do not comment on that. If that bothers you, then I am ever so sorry and I don't really care.

Fury burns 
inside my mind
It pours out in tears
from my eyes

Why did you do it
Why did you lie
Tell me you love me
but leave me to die 

There’s so many questions
I could ask about the world
but I’m more concerned 
about this fucking girl 

She’s perfect, 
She is
She must be
She must be pretty fucking perfect to replace me

Not to sound self-centered
I obviously do 
But how could you do this
after all I’ve done for you

But that’s just the thing
No one cares about me
take advantage of this girl
then send her out to sea

That’s what you did with me
You just set me aside
and I fought and I fought
I cried and I tried

I was nice to you 
Thats all I ever was
and you obviously
never gave a fuck about us

But there really wasn’t an us
Now that I think about it
but that’s perfectly fucking fine
because I can live without it 

Without the want
without the thoughts
Its no longer you
that I sought 

I thought it was you
I thought I loved you
Now I look at you
and I’m disgusted at what a thing you’d do 

Good enough
I may not be
but that’s what I strive for
I’d rather not be good enough than to be a whore

I assume that’s what she is
because that’s the type for you
maybe that’s why Im not suitable
Maybe I need to get a clue
