i owe you something


for every woman you had
for every time that you took your shot
for every single time you slipped off your wedding ring
i owe you a bullet

you put me underfoot
second best
no matter how beautiful i was
on the outside…inside
the home i made
the love i gave…
it meant less than nothing

now…now that you’re alone
i’m your ideal
the butterfly you can’t catch hold of
i am all that you think about…dream of….
but you’ll never catch me
know that
because i know something you don’t even know
that you only want to catch me
so you can pull off my wings
