Ethical axioms are found and tested not very differently from the axioms of science. Truth is what stands the test of experience. - Albert Einstein

Loaner


1 nomination

you set me up to take the fall you knew you didn't want me why did you let me love you? when you can't love at all? it hurt when you left me more than you'll ever know with one foot out the door I should've realized: you were just on loan I didn't want to be a ship passing by I wanted a part of you unconcealed but I didn't read the fine print that made your heart untouchable it hurt when you left me more than you'll ever know you always felt half there I should've realized: you were just on loan paycheck to paycheck, I couldn't put enough away living with you stole my past and kept me a debt slave you're worse than a bank or a credit card interest rate god forbid forgoing the credit check because you'll never take layaway... i'm tired of the excuses why don't you grow up? I should've traded you in should've got my money's worth I was the policyholder on a junked out loaner it hurt when you left me more than you'll ever know once I loved, you ran I realized then: you were just on loan
