You’re calling me baby while she’s in your bed
Telling me you wish it was me instead
Whispering through the phone sweet words in my ear
Knowing full well those are words for her to hear
Shame on you and your insipid deceit
Is there one honest bone between your head and your feet?
Shining a light on the lies that you conceal
are the crimes your heart and lips reveal
I don’t want your kisses or borrowed affection
that slither through your teeth without thought or reflection
How can I trust what is born of deception
built on prevarications from the moment of inception
I don’t want your excuses or justifications implied
whining about what you’re lacking and she doesn’t provide
a Man would know how to get what is his desire
or have the courage to walk away, and not be a liar
but you choose to stay and deliberately mislead
A real Man owns up to and corrects his misdeed
You were supposed to be her protector, honorably
How is someone like you going to protect and honor me?
Just because you identify as ‘male’ doesnt mean you’ve got the cojones
And I dont see much better from most of your cronies
You walk around demanding respect based on prestige you’ve concocted
Floating on ego, playing a part you’ve adopted
Preaching to all who will listen of all you have learned
Well I’m here to teach you that respect.. is not given but earned
You want to sit there and talk to me about what you deserve..
wow.. you’ve got some nerve.
he asked me if I forgave him..
to which I smiled and replied,
every day i forgive you‘
what i did not tell him was
that each morning
and every night
i have to remind myself
to forgive him
i did not tell him
that I didn’t know
our last kiss would be the last
that he hadn’t given me a chance to cherish it
that I didn’t even remember
when it was
or how his lips felt against mine
that i wish I could remember that last kiss
as clearly as I remember the first
beneath that moonlit sky
but I hadn’t known it was the end of us
and it all seems so unfinished
i did not tell him
of how much i miss the gaze
that used to warm my skin like sunshine
but is now hidden behind clouds
or of how I ache for the arms that used to hold me
now my bones feel so cold
I did not tell him
it will always hurt to think of him
it will always hurt
to see him smile
and to know that he had seen my heart breaking
right in front of his eyes
that he had known of my prayers to keep him..
and simply watched
i forgive him
When you spend your days in solitude and mourning,
when those days roll into nights without even a warning,
and the only comfort is the tears you shed,
and your only companion is the warmth of your bed.
When you finally manage to venture out
and you see the whole world is moving about.
When the only thing that keeps you upright is the anger,
when your tears spring forth from the gentle smile of a stranger,
when that stranger’s gaze shows a familiar recognition
that seems to tear down your self-imposed inhibition.
When the sorrow in her eyes mirrors your own,
and your heart no longer feels alone,
and you know without a doubt you’ve finally grown.
Gone are the days of feeling dejected,
of trying so hard and still being rejected.
When the stars align on the right side of destiny
When you think ‘all I want is to give her the best of me’
As you revel in the smiles
at the corners of her eyes.
When every moment with her helps to heal the pain
and the burden falls from your shoulders like summer rain
when the promise from her lips the truth discloses
like the promise of the bud that bursts into roses.
When all your worries fade into her warm embrace
and you memorize every line, every nuance of her face
when you think of old pains and there is not a single trace..
When the core of your essence has been revealed..
Then and only then will you know you are healed.
