better offer

I flipped a coin
to win you
I should have had
a better offer
you the rock
me the scissors
you crush me
you the scissors
me the paper
you cut
at my heart strings
what kind of
is this?
I still need a better one
I'll be your solid rock
if you'll be my paper blanket

I liked this very much all the way through L21.  I think it would be more powerful without the last two lines.  

L3 = "should have" instead of "should of"

Would you consider less spacing, as well?  So that it reads a little faster.  All the space between stanzas isn't needed... make it one long stanza?

I like this but I agree the last line isn't needed. I would say less spacing not lose it all together it does work into this but i don't think it needs quie as much especially between L7 and L8 or L17 and L18.
