Nobody’s Choice But Mine

I’m not anyone’s first choice

I’m not anyone’s favorite

They can tell me how much I matter

But in the end, there’s always someone better

I can send money, heartfelt messages

Rent vehicles and see you in different states

But there’s someone who matters more

I’m the fool who’s standing in a closed door

Today feels so cold, feelings don’t die

I’m just dead eyes to the passersby

Sickly sadness amputates any reason

Words say love but are trademark treason

Nothing more than a phase, a one night stand

Gave my heart and got the veins handed back

Caught in a bout of serious reflection

Does my life need a finite correction

The blade is easy, and the stripes are bright

Please let me go into the light
