So Easy to Become Bitter

So easy it is to become bitter.

When you’re around those with no-filter.

Ugly jokes are never funny,

I just played the card of the dummy.

When in reality you just hurt me.

Building up my insecurity.

I wonder why I mocked myself when you’re not around,

Then I heard it come from your mouth.

I became bitter about what you left,

Because I can’t shake the feeling of being an idiot.
