Come To the End

Darya - Spot of Tea
Come To the End
by Michael Doyle

You want me to take you seriously
As you glare at me furiously
With your arms around the guy
I caught you with before my reply

You flame me by way of "fuck you" balloon
As I advert my eyes trained to the moon
Doing the best of my best James Dean
My mind focused on when you were my dream

I won't be held down by your comedy
Pretending your antics are my tragedy
Keep holding on to your fantasy
Now that I know the truth, it means little to me

Laid out as it is, cards on the table
This experience will serve as fable
A lesson learned in less than mediocrity
Served up by someone thinking herself legendary

Only too verbally punch her way out of relevancy
In a fall from grace from the heights of majesty
When you refused to look at or ask for evidence
In my heart, your feigned hurt lost all relevance

I won't be caught up in the might-have-beens
When it seems you don't remember the whens
Of true words spoken between true friends
My hurt focus on lies has come to the end
