    I’m suppose to be bitter and I know it, - you didn't expand on this or let people know why you're supposed to be bitter in a clear way, confuses the audience and they can't follow, not good.
    Delivering true words of sorrow as a poet, - you called yourself a poet, could be seen as pretentious by the average listener.
    But hey, There’s no tears of rage, - still no idea what you're talking about at this point, no audience is following.
    It’s just a phase, simply a turning of a page,
    Because to put it honestly,
    She came to you straight through me, - this line is pretty unclear with what i think you're trying to convey.
    You got something out of her I couldn’t even see, - good line, makes sense, clear, relatable.
    becoming everything I always tried to be,
    I’m suppose to be bitter and I should be,
    But how can I be bitter when you let us both free - Major cringe, cliche line.

    Lyrics are too vague and trying too hard to be artsy fartsy. Talking about specifics would create a stronger emotional reaction in an audience. did she come straight through you, or did someone steal her but hey it's ok because x. Word choice overall could be a little better to convey what you mean. The lyrics overall don't elicit a emotional response out of me. They didn't paint a picture or deliver a very concise story line, although there was a vague idea of what was happening.
    i agree with olie on everything he said. But i still like it, it flows well as a rap, when i read it in my head it had a Dance Music/Rap section feeling to it like Examples "changed the way you kiss me"

    This just reminds me of Sia! I like it. Needs to be definetely finished. - but I'd recommend to get a little bit simpler if its gonna be "sung", but if its gonna be rapped then its fine! (:
