Not Good Enough Huh

People these days don't know a relationship from relation lust
In this lifetime getting in a relationship takes bold guts
Heart is wounded by the emotional cuts
No ifs, ands, or buts
For her I laid it all on the line, only to get stabbed in the back
Gave her my all, but she looks past that
But looks directly at what I can't do
Instead of what I CAN do
She said I don't do anything for her
She's so rude
I ask why don't she leave then
Now she has an attitude
Using my intuition is what built me
You mad at me sweetheart, you're looking guilty
Find another guy to suck up to you because I'm not the one
North Pole hearted is what I've become
An employed/college student isn't good enough.
Get with a dropout/drug dealer and see the definition of rough
I've walked and took buses for you
More times than a few
Excuse me if I don't have that much time on my hands
Therefore on the other side of my heart is where you stand
If you wanna leave then leave
It's only leverage that you didn't believe
You have the ignorant capacity and audacity to compare me to your exes
You laugh at me because I'm car less and he has a Lexus
Real funny
I'm still making money
Might be a little slow
But even a frozen river still flow
My life is more realistic
Than materialistic
To the end
So even without a car I'm still the best boyfriend
Met your fam, gave you advice
You question what I do for you
That's not nice
I guess my devotion isn't the potion
This relationship vehicle will never get in motion
I'm so confident from head to toe
Skin to bone
So love me or leave me alone

Yea you heard me, love me or get lost. Where I'm headed on the road doesn't require 
paying a toll at your heart. I told you from the jump, since I'm busy so much you must trust 
me when I'm away from you. But being immature like you are, other people can easily get 
in your ear. They don't know me or what I do. But it's ok, I will gladly grant you my wishes 
on whoever you get with after me. I know I'm a good gentlethug. Women twice my age tell 
me that all the time. I can't get a girl my age to see that though. My dad always said I'm 
smart beyond my years. I didn't know that many years ahead though lol. I feel like I lost 
weight lately for some reason. When or if you get it together you know my number. If I must 
get in your head through these poems, I'm sure you already know I can write all day.

    I am glad you're getting this out, Richard. When you've done your best, all you can do is let it go. Maybe later she'll come around. You stay strong, little brother and one day you'll look back and laugh at this. Peace and love, your big sister, Audrey
