Doesn’t Play Well With Others
It seems our demons cannot get along
Your demons don’t play with others very well
Mine have resigned themselves to a quiet place
Adopted the new attitude, go to hell
You masquerade around, flashing the smiles of the gods
Hemsworth worthy, Mystical dimples
The pretentious way you smirk when you wink your eye
SOS warnings, begin in ripples
Stealing the last air that I was breathing
Making me feel better for giving in
Watching my eyes as they glazed over
The last thing I remember is that grin
Took the last that I had to offer
What I could give, was what kept you around
Empty and void now, of any surplus
Walked away, dropping your ace out on the ground
I always hoped that there would be a reprieve
Another chance to gaze into those eyes
I was the ace you kept hidden inside your coat sleeve
A winning hand, and you left me behind
