You were never my girl
I barely knew your name
So why am I falling to pieces
Like we were old flames
I’ve been walking away now
Day after day
So far from the start
But here in my mind you stay 
I tell myself..

I’m not interested in your sexy lines
It’s not my fault that you’re so blind
It doesn’t bother me.. what you do
Ignore these tears.. I’m better without you

Girl, why are you still in my head
You’re just a yesterday
I don’t want you... or maybe
The truth inside is driving me crazy
I’m talking to myself
Telling me.. I’m glad your gone
All alone, it’s getting hard to hide
God, I wish you were by my side

Cause I’m missing all your sexy lines
It was my fault how could I be so blind
Night and day.. what am I going to do
Going to dry the tears.. I’m better without you

Lying to myself.. I’m better without you
I’m better without you
What am I going to do
Knowing it’s not true
I’m better without you

~Lyric Man

Note: Melancholy madness is in my life right now. I might break out tomorrow, but for tonight the deep surrounds!

Oh Lyric Man, I was so wonderfully seduced by your deeply felt heartache, which then became my heartache, and your melancholy madness of lost love.. Your lyrics truly moved me. Belated congratulations on your well deserved recognition with POTD honors. Warmest wishes.. ~Susan

When that realization hits; it's a real epiphany! Then we try to mislead ourselves only to see the truth again and again. Well done.

It would make a pretty good country song, LM. Congratulations on POTD. Rejection is hard on the pride but personally, if somebody doesn't want to be around me, I prefer they stay away.

"I'm better without you" Yet, you are not better unless you are with her. It sounds like your heart has many emotions tugging on it- and so very deeply. I hope this is your Muse tangling around such thoughts- if not. I am sending you (((many hugs))) in the wind. Congratulations Lyric Man, on Poem of the Day. ~ Brandy

Wow, don't call it madness - if so, I am "mad," for I know those conflicting emotions well. Congratulations!
