Bitter Revive

          Another try and miss and bleeding scar
          All gone: excitement, sweetness, shakes and rattles
          I, from my side, can only push that far
          Gosh, I'm so done with bitter uphill battles

          Don't worry, I can handle, I can cope
          At least I'm done with sitting on a burner
          And grabbing phone again with secret hope
          For tiny letter in the top left corner

          You know, I'm good at playing cards on hand
          Here's my plan "B", and I will execute it. 
          But still! There's just something I can't stand
          Why, why the heck it gotta be so stupid?
