Terrible Mess

written by: devereaux frazier



You asked me to call
but smashed the phone
And invited me out
but hid at home
You asked for my lips
but slashed your face
And wanted my body
but with long nails your own you traced
You asked my heart
but tore it instead
You told me of love
and devoured the shreds
You're a classic
like a little black dress
On the outside you were perfect
but on the inside, such a terrible mess
