she's so pretty

I watch you with her,

I’m stupid for caring,

I watch you with her,

Gosh she’s so pretty,

It’s not fair,

Her hair,

Her eyes, her smile,

She drowned you,

She pulled you in,

Touch The Universe

direct your gaze skyward.

I see your eyes slip through

lens and the light shoot down,
