Sebastian IV

You’ve won the night’s most honorary award
For saying that you felt the same,
And taking it back after just five days
Now look what you did, you made a little girl cry
You looked just like Prince Charming
Until you pushed her off

But you had to go and deceive her, galloping away
Leaving a trail of smoke and
Funhouse mirrors
You sent a letter with an official seal, that
Said you could be her  friend
She really had
Believed in you
Then you went and changed your mind

And your words became so meaningless
Like a politician’s speech
As if saying it was okay

The fairytale was done for sure, but
What happened once it

Well, the epilogue, it goes like this
She dried up all her
Your  words were nothing but a heap of trash
Much like the boy who wrote them
She deserves someone someday who has both a spine
And a pair
Meanwhile, you deserve your prize, the
Award for weakest man
Our heroine walked out the champ
Because now she knows the truth:
Relationships don’t ruin things
Boys do
