slither.

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.

In Love With Another

When the one that you love
is in love with another,
its like chasing the rain
while running for cover.

Like bridging the distance
between east and west,
knowing its still farther
from your head to your chest.

You run and you run
yet remain where you started;
but the sages have warned,
love is not for the faint hearted.

Love asks no permission
whether coming or going,
be it to stay or pass through,
like an ephemeral wind blowing.

Like a welcoming farewell,
the mixed message from your lover;
when the one that you love
is in love with another.

Over You

 

pain

I can no longer bear
to look into your lying eyes;
there is such  deep sadness
when love dies

I can no longer bear
to be held in your cheating arms;
the beautiful hands that once held mine
have lost all their charm

I can no longer bear
to hold a place in your misleading heart;
my heart once held you in such high graces
but you pierced it with a fickle dart

I gave you all I had
and I suffered all the pain;
You took it all for granted
It was all for your gain

All this time you deceived me,
letting you was my mistake.
And somehow I forgive you,
for my own sake

Now when I say my final goodbye
suddenly you want to apologize;
you want to be my ‘everything’
but I no longer choose to agonize..

..over you.
