It is all a numbers game, or so I am told.
7 is supposed to be lucky, and it shows.
But for me it has been the number nine.
I have no idea how it started, but it happens all the time.
In ’99 I saw Phantom Menace.
Oh good god another Star Wars reference, lord help us.
In 09’ I saw that movie nine.
It was pretty good, and got me interested in graphic design.
That was also the year I saw AFI with you
I was freshly out of my upmtenth 302.
Fall was tough that year, and winter also
That was it, one and done, gone and blocked now, built up a wall.
It all comes back to that number nine.
I have lost track of how many times you have used “ I am sorry, lets try again”
Iets chalk it up to 9 give or take.
Each time I let you back in my life it has always been a mistake.
But damn can you blame me, you raised an optimistic.
But buy ’19 I know better now, fuck you, fuck off- I am done with this.
I will never let someone run me like I let the 9 of you.
I am done with that submissive shit, this lesson was long overdue.
