Just Like Me

How could you lie to me
and sit there silently
after striking your hands
against your love so violently
and just lie here with me

hate drives you crazy in bed
turnover and hate me again
when did I fall for a slut
why does every time I cum
it feels like I’m giving up

what did we do to get here
can we love without fear
who do we compete with
there just the reasons we need
to feel completed

how did we last this long
how did the weak foundations
manage to stand here strong
how did something this wrong
go on for so long

we should let it be
each week, we’re begging to leave
cut our nose off to spite our face
that’s how we forget to breathe
you’re just like me

tit for tat with tricky tactics
who’s got your back when
ratchets are out to attack it
when i gave into a mad bitch
that’s as bad as me



I Broke Her Heart

I broke her heart
and you called me the devil
left her begging for help with pebbles
but I was up and gone
as I ripped up the roots of her petals

She broke my heart
and you still smile at an angel
curse at me because she was unfaithful
when she was playing behind my back
Was I supposed to be grateful?


Hold Me Down

Hold me down
as you take my breath away
Hold my hand
make freedom hard to contemplate
Hold my heart
as it beats to the rhythm of your love
as you hold my life
in the palm of your hand,
waiting for it to erupt.

What is love, intertwined with suffering?
We meant every fight as every sweet nothing
We whispered, when we were falling fast
We slowed down, but couldn’t talk it out
We were the fools, who couldn’t co-exist
The memories in the box, you can keep it
As I set fire to every mental photograph
Let us cry now, when we look back we’ll laugh
As we reminisce about the distant past
When you and I were hardly apart
Remember when, we’d scream and shout?
And what was all that crying about?
We were young then, love was a breeze
Now aged and bitter sweet, falling isn’t easy


Inside and Out

Hello beautiful,
She cringes, attacks me for thinking this
But I think you’re stunning, picturesque
I love the way your smile stretches,
You can’t see me smile in these messages
On the surface, your bodies perfect
But the word you earned, you curse it
But it’s not about your exterior, is it?
Or your ability to apply that finish
Painting pictures with different lipsticks
Colouring over the pain you’ve lived with
Cruel words shot at you, a potent dart
All you have to show for it, is a broken heart
When cupids shooting poisoned arrows
Continue to shine, it’s never left you shallow
You’ve got the gift of a beautiful heart
You’ve got the words that shoot for the stars
You have a mind that most can only hope for
The devil holds more, but the soul is yours
Don’t let the blind tie you down
Because you’re beautiful, both inside and out.


Dirt On Your Knees

She said, I’m not too happy in my relationship
Gave me a sniff, expected me not be invasive
Commitment issues, that makes two of us
But I can’t shake you off, you’ve shook me up
The taste of your lips, took all my patience
How does one-night turn strangers into favourites?
It’s a bit loud in here, let’s slip out for a bit
I’d give anything to be where that cigarette is
One track mind, I’m honestly not that guy
Did I just say that; did you believe that lie?
The guilt and shame concealed in your brain
As you let my ethanol touch, kill the pain
Slap it away, my hands get a head of their selves
Are you looking for comfort or wedding bells?
Because if it’s the latter I doubt I can help
But one night, that’s not all I expect from a girl
That’s not all you’re worth, you’re the earth to me
Why else would I want to get some dirt on your knees

Breathe Underwater

Flailing, water fills my lungs
Salt takes rest upon my tongue
Wander through memories made
As life in a shared light fades

Years spent in the gym together
Wasted. A delicate endeavour   
Hold me under, prevent my escape
Leave me afloat amid heartbreak

Don’t walk and expect me to wake
Sail through pools of salted lakes
Drowning in the love you’ve slaughtered
Don’t let go, until I breathe underwater


I would have killed anyone
Who treats you the way I’ve done
For what I’d call a man
You’d call a fool and a sham
But still placed your hand in mine
The guy you were standing beside
The more you built me up
The more I put you down
The more you opened up,
The more I stood my ground
Fell for you, made you trip
Wrote a love poem, a plagiarist
A sadist, a crazy rage exists
I only know how to love, to hate it

I only know how to love
Because you gave it all up
No patience, drove me crazy
Then steered me back to safety
Switch gears, slowed down
Emptied the clip, no rounds
Situation flipped, gave you respect
Elevated us away from the rest
We got our act together
Meant it when we said forever
Two lovers entwined into none
Forget everything we’ve since missed
Because I would approve of anyone
Who treats you the way I did
