four four four

I was born and you apologized, and you quit reading plays
cuz your wife hates musicals and says there kinda gay
I rhyme in simple syllables because I have shitty days
My stanzas end in four, God sheds no tears today

cuz?  Are you sure you want that and not 'because?"

Line 2 - there needs to be they're.  
Line 3 - rhyme, syllables

This doesn't make sense at all, not only because your stanzas don't end in four but mostly because they don't add up to anything I can see.

thank you, my spelling is terrible.

I'm interested in what the four represents.  Oops, you conjoined syllables to because.

the space bar and I don't get along.

four represents the maddening amount of lines in my stanzas that I cannot seem to break from.

I rhyme in simple syllables too but I wish you had a stronger theme or voice in your piece. Don't get hung up on length, work with what you got. Give me four lines of genius and I won't care to think on length. good luck.
