Affects of Rejection

When your rejected, by the one you think you love
It's like a spoken paragraph, without a bunch of fuss
On the outside looking in, it's not the big a deal
But when your inside, this is how it makes me feel

I am not good enough, both past and future have been better
Your lacking in something, and probably will be forever
She's saying that all her old relationships, even the ones that were bad
Are better then what me and her together would of had

Your a dull seashell on the beach, that doesn't compare to the rest
Left alone and discarded, better off thrown in the trash
Will... your just not good enough, maybe I'll let you be my friend
But since you are nothing, that's where our closeness will end

That's why some guys respond with anger, how could you diss me so
But me.. i just feel like I've been stomped to the floor
Perhaps these feelings are dumb, but what am i suppose to think
A failure once again,  with tears hiding behind my eyes as i blink
