Completely Let Down


Tell me why I learned what sex is

Before I learned what love is?

"Because you had an older brother"

__they say

Well, why did my older sister

__I have to lay?

"Well, that's between

__you and her

But right now you became a nerd"

But did you think telling me that wouldn't hurt?

I got too close to thee end of time

It seems I can't make any girl mine

So I continue to lose my mind

'Cause no girl will give me her heart

And that just makes every day hard

God, take the brain out of my head

'Cause I can't think a girl into my life

So what the Hell is my brain for?

All of this bullshit

In a life that's trash

The wreckage around me

__is such a bore

So why don't I go and just get smashed?

Well, because I am an addict

And I cannot have just one

The Lord doesn't care that I have no one

I don't complain to Her

Because She obviously don't care

Look at all the people She gave covid to

They're dying because She wants them to

So what's complaining about singlehood gonna do?

The news of my heart

__getting battered and bruised

____and beaten all the time

Is thee only news that gets stuck in my head

But girls don't care

No one comes over

No one calls

No talks to me, at all

When they're a girl

So fuck these stupid bitches

I hope they all fuckin' die

As they leave my life

__without saying goodbye

I hope that some one

__will take their lives

I'd pray

__but what does that do?

God never comes thru

__when it comes to love

Just expects me to find her myself

And get her on my own too

Well, fuck God too!

What's the use?

This is actually one of your better poems, angry as it is. I love the first two lines and that you start with an interrogative. I like questions in poetry. This has meter and rhyme. I follow the train of thought. Nobody got beheaded. Yea, this is good, DL

Yeah, it's good that nobody died in this one! L.O.L.
