Look what I done gone and did!
I sent you my poem
Submerged in bittersweet pain
full of my down to earth ancient free to be me feelings
loud and raging
so you would know how you hurt me
just how much I hurt
and how to be human the next time
so I wouldn’t have to bleed my heart in order to tell you about yourself
And look what you done gone and did!
You’ve obviously felt my pain/my anger
and realized that there are feelings just as important as yours
But you’ve clearly been acting right with the wrong girl
Cause she ain’t me
And can’t no one else write you poems about yourself
like I can
So what you gonna do now?
