and you wonder why

I strived for perfection

Finally perfect my look in the reflection

Just like that the mirror cracked

Broken once more

Pieces to be picked up

And reassembled

So tired of trying to reconstruct

Never quite the same

Sometimes even changing the foundation

They wonder why I am such an "asshole"

Why I am suck a prick

Its because the relationships never seem to stick

My lady friends just dip

Never wanting more

Staying for me to adore them

Losing them as a friend

This is the stage where I always revert

Explaining my personality of an introvert

Its better to be alone

To be mindless on my phone

Back to the tinder game

Feeling my heart with loneliness 

And shame

I don't know how to be happy

But right when I think I've found it

It shatters
