your trophy is lost

30 Oct

the truth is you don’t love me…
you love being in love with somebody,
you love showing me off to your friends,
and writing songs about you & me…

You love having my face on your phone
and using me to scare your mom….
honestly I’m feeling more like a trophy,
who if you’re not careful is going to run off…

You love telling our friends from college
that you finally got the girl they all tried…
You drag me along for hours to your work,
just so that I can meet them & say ‘hi’…

And amid all your bragging,
I feel lost under your arm…
And you only want me to come out from your shadow,
To kiss me in the back of your car….
