You Deserve Better






When I look I’m the mirror what do I see?
Nothing but a stranger staring back at me
I am so lost, I don’t know who I am anymore
I feel as though living has just become another chore

You wouldn’t want to see my face today
I wouldn’t know what really to say
But on the inside I’m really screaming
Sometimes I wish I was just dreaming

This cannot be me, but you’re there and I don’t recognize you
What do you want from me? What do you intend to do?
My heart is my own, stop trying to take over!
Maybe I’m just crazy, I’ll be better when I’m sober

Have I finally lost it, lost my way?
Leave me alone demons, I don’t want you to stay
I feel out of my mind, there’s nothing inside
I just need to get it together, you’re just along for the ride

It’s crazy how the pain seems to overflow
It’s funny how I can’t seem to let go
Even if I cried a thousand tears
They would only fall on deaf ears

My heart is not perfect but it’s sincere
Yet, it is more clouded then it may appear
We have to confront our true selves, deep in our core
Eventually we will have to open that door

Who is this person looking back at me in the mirror?

  1. You write some intriguing verse, and the rhyme doesn’t feel forced. Very nice 🙂

    • Thank you very much! When I write, I try and capture the soul and emotions of whatever it is that’s on my mind at the time. I want to make something people can relate to and just pure honest feelings.

  2. The subtle feelings that you have captured can be easily felt through your writing 🙂
