“you will be the death of me.”
you told me so seductively,
as if you knew the roll of your tongue would make me fall immediately.
and i’m not one to judge someone just because they throw themselves at anyone who promises love
but then came you and i don’t know what to do.
they told me you were hard to get
like chasing oil around in a puddle of water,
but one kiss made you weaker than the rest
and now i’m not sure i want to bother.
so i left you behind like a worthless lie
but you tried to follow.
oh how do you expect me to be free when all you've done is clip my wings?
and i pushed you down i pushed you down pushed you down you down down
because that's what lovers who can't stand to be lovers do.
they abuse and
use and drown
and when you told me six short words
i knew for sure your heart was cursed.
if i keep leaving you down in the dirt
maybe you'll realize that pretty girls can hurt
everything you are going
for and everything you're
dying for, so my dearest
darling, must you see,
"you too, will be the death of me."
i cut my hair last night to start anew in a chapter i call without you and it's going to be the best i've ever written
