You Always Get Your Way

You scream and flaunter your temper,
Your words have no meaning,
You take things too far,
And your friendships are receding

You make a mountain
Out of a molehill,
Just to get your way,
And you say whatever you want,
Because you know your friends will stay

You kill the mood,
You put out the flame,
You walk around,
And tell every guy your name

And then you pick up the phone,
And you call up your friends,
You tell them your life story
That never ends

Selfishly vain and in denial,
You play the victim,
And you fake a smile,
Manipulate things to suit your while

They tell you no
And where to go,
But you always come back,
More desperate than ever,
You always assume things will be okay,
But they’re never getting any better

You always get your way.
It makes me mad.
It makes me hostile.
It makes me make you look innocent.
And you feed off of that like a dog to a bone,
But I want you to know that I’m letting go.

It’s hard to leave us behind
Now that our lives are intertwined
And I hate it,
More than anyone could say;
You always get your way.

About humblefoot

Kyle Fisher (who often uses the alias Logan Rowley online and in his writing) has been enjoying writing since he was just 8 years old. His first formal publication was at the age of 13. He is now a spiritualist and openly queer author, perpetually searching for inspiration to create and learn more about the world around him. He is always drawn to the simplicity and uniqueness that life has to offer. He doesn’t identify with labels or socially constructed ideas about how the world should be. He believes that the world is your oyster, and that we all project our own destinies with the thoughts we choose to harbour about the universe. He is an idealistic, spiritualistic hippie who is just trying to find his place in this world, crafting each word to leave his mark, and promote love and equality among all people.
