Throwing In The Towel

She was beautiful
She had a great job
Came from a wealthy family
To me she became
The formidable opponent
For your love and attention
I had nothing to offer
Except my time and devotion
And I dreamed that would be
Enough to hold your desires
But everytime we came close
She would be there
Drawing you away again
I learned you just loved the attention
While it was tearing me up inside
No more games for me
She can have the best of
What used to be mine

She Wins

She is so pretty
Not like me
She is outgoing
Nothing like me
She is a flirt
Not like me
She is wealthy
Nothing like me
She is her own boss
Not like me
She has you
…how can I compete?
