You Failed The Test


Well, there goes that

There goes "us"

There will never be

__a "you and me"

I think you know where the door is

That leads you outta my heart


And good riddance

I hope he treats you like shit

Who ever he is

And you'll regret putting him on a pedestal

You will

Thanks for slapping me with a bill

Flirtation's over

The world is over

We're all dying

We're all gonna die

You'll never be mine

You won't even notice my silence

It'll just "be"

But it all never mattered

I knew you were just a playette

Playing my heart like a clarinet

Refusing to even blow me

Never even got to know me

But I guess when you have an excuse for ev'rything

__like I do

Nobody cares to listen

__to get to know you

Nor read

Such as in our case

I do hope you stay clean though

But your tits are too big

__for you to want to do

____anything with me

I just know it

So I told you I was schizophrenic

To test your relationship with me

Or the lack there of

Needless to say, "you failed the test"

Now I'm in Hell

So once again

__I can shut up

And nothing can become of us

Have a Hell of a life

Bye bye now

Have you heard that song called "I Hope" by Gabby Barrett? Your poem reminds me of it.

Wouldn't know. I have been off the radio for a long time.
