Used

I was lonely but too shy to say so
because I was drowning in my thoughts
from a bridge that collapsed
over such troubled waters
Not that I expected anyone to notice

Though it’s a different person each time
she always looks the same to me
A raindrop from a dying flower
that I pitied yet somewhat admired
maybe I saw myself in the decay

I never used you
I only abused myself
I was only truthful
I took it all out on myself

I’m so happy I’m not desirable
because I’d lacerate superficial side of me
that would no doubt spread like
a plague within my pathetic body
You should have left me to drift away

The End
