General Poetry Shane The Poet

The Girl Over There

it’s not what you have, it’s what you had before
it’s a style you are trying to perfect, by lighting up
burn out your lungs girl, because you won’t ever be happy,
you allow this to ignite and burn down this city,
we all stare at you with ridiculous smiles that never fade away

you’re fake and useless, can’t allow room for anything
like a rocket with out a crew,
you don’t know what you are doing

so tell me how you can’t do nothing, and how everything is easier
and ask me what I should do to make it easier,
you are one of these girls that breaks hearts,
well I am not going to let you continue to do this to me,
that girl over there is more than happy to take your spot,
like a number in line, maybe she will not treat me like I never mattered

you grow up, and get old,
you get tired, and start to pretend life is such an amazing thing,
I hate feeling like I should flaunt how much better off you were,

you thought you could walk away without scars?
I’ve been torn to pieces at your own hands,
you will see everything you could have had,
you won’t look me in the eyes next time and say you’re talking to him,

you’ll look away and wish away all the mistakes you’ve made,
and I won’t be the one looking for a way out
because the girl over there noticed where I was
