I'll Come Back Another Time

do you remember

when life used to be great

and i wasn’t writing about my stupid life

that I hate,


i remembered

when the darkness of my eyelids weren’t scary

but now they’re terrifying

and she claims it’s just

“bad timing”

but i claim it’s because you broke his heart

and left him crying

singing dark songs about dying

in a dark room with nobody by him,


maybe that’s why my room is so dark

and my eyes are so dry

maybe it’s not because you loved me


it’s that you fell for another guy
