Life for Substance

Life for Substance

A Poem by The Last Poetic King
"

poetry, lyrics. something i felt the need to write

"
You're just not the same.. Anymore
Filling your body with substance,
Just trying to forget that you feel
Trying to deny your humanity

There used to be a time that I thought you'd be the one
But I can see now that was the foolish person I used to be
Believing that you could ever truly love someone like me
Just a s****y kid with a s****y life trying to hang on to anything
To anything that he thought was worth the fight,
But I don't know anymore

When I saw you in that restaurant at 5 in the morning
Something balled up inside me, something, maybe a warning
I was a fool to ever think you could be who you used to be

Is the substance really worth the death?
Is this the story you wrote in your head when you were only a kid?
Lying down, unable to breath, just hating everything
Hoping that something or someone will see you

A blond girl lost in misery,
But it's no mystery,
Who is at fault.

You made your choices,
You choose your death over your love
And there is no going back,
One day you'll find yourself on your back
With one last breath, I wonder if you'll look back full of regret


I wonder if you'll look back at all of this
I wonder if you'll look back
I wonder if you'll look back


There used to be a time that I thought you'd be the one
But I can see now that was the foolish person I used to be
Believing that you could ever truly love someone like me
Just a s****y kid with a s****y life trying to hang on to anything
To anything that he thought was worth the fight,
But I don't know anymore
