Yesterday she woke feeling useless
Like a tool in a shed you’ve forgotten about
You know, the one that tightens or straightens something
That you don’t need tightened or straightened anymore?
Today she woke up feeling worn
Like the mattress on your bed
You use year after year
Never even consider replacing.
Tomorrow she will wake feeling differently
She will decide that what he said to her
Was a permanent solution to a story
She would have never written.
Tick tock the clock goes on
Without worrying about your time
I’ve seen the shit you write
Where is your insoluble rhyme?
Favorable rhythms are all over the city
Yet everyone works for a dime.
Shell shocked she remembered her price
Realized it wasn’t between her legs.
He’d like to say he respects the girl
As he sits on the phone and begs.
She answered a riddle once with the truth
It’s isn’t exactly his tail that wags.
Mind fucked and unrelenting
Today she reveals her pain.
The man with a roar has lost his way
Now it is another woman he will gain.
He casts her out like everyone else
Then begs for it to rain.
Tomorrow she will rise like a pheonix
For the sun doesn’t set where you think
She plays the role of what she was cast
Then tells him where he may go
And where he can put his phone.
