You lived your little life in the clouds
While I drowned in oceans of sorrow
You shine so brightly in all the crowds
I couldn’t see another tomorrow
You compared me to Paris in the spring
But you’d never been to Paris before
I made you promise never to sing
But all you could ever do was adore
me. And cherish all my hideous flaws
While I could only critique your fault.
You’d wait forever for my heart to thaw
But I never told you it was basalt
I drowned you and you kept me afloat
But I never loved you so I left you this note.
