This one was going to be one for the band, a set of lyrics. But I don’t do much music anymore, so I guess it’s time to call it a poem and be done.


Me and you
I bought guns
And you bought glue
We were young
Having fun
I was stupid
You’re the one

I confess
I was best-dressed
It’s okay
I’m a different
Kind of mess

If destroyed
You can try me
See what I can do but
If destroyed
You know that I won’t still be true

It couldn’t last
I knew that
And I moved fast
Thought that I
Could aspire
To a better
Way of life

I wasn’t right
I misjudged
And I took flight
You moved on
I was wrong
Now you’re better
You’re the bomb

I didn’t get better
I got better at being bitter
And I guess I have to
live with that


About dcduell

Failed musician. Trying to write for TV. Never sure quite where I'm headed. Serial un-funnyman. I used to do a lot of writing. Sometimes I still do. So I decided to put it on the internet. I'm on Facebook and Twitter. Pretty active on the former, not so much on the latter. Holler at me.
