Two Cents

A Poem About Regret


You say you want what’s best for me


Yet you give me no room to breath


What’s best? A you without me



I’ve lived a life without a chance


A life that didn’t make sense


One that passed by without a glance



Your two cents makes no sense


You’re broke and confused


My emotions are left minced


And I was the one who was used



The regrets with you are a number I can’t see


A person I would never want to be


Hiding behind a mask of what I believe



And yet you seem to find a way


For me to think of you each day


For me to wonder that road astray



Your two cents makes no sense


You’re troubled and undone


Your emotions left on the fence


You take off and run
