The Trials of Love

Wed, 01/30/2019 - 10:42 -- Tobias

 

You seek his attention

 

Oops! you were never mentioned

 

You were never worthy of his attention

 

You were a victim of his bad intention

 

He will never give his recognition

 

You contemplate in your head

 

Was he wrong, or right?

 

I’m just too nice

 

Longing for his touch for a night

 

Screaming from your lungs

 

You are grabbing my arms too tight

 

Word are exchanged

 

He will never change

 

You have been suffering from emotional pains

 

Your mind was gone already

 

However, your body stayed

 

Your craved for him

 

You laid for him

 

You prayed for him

 

You justified excuses

 

He left you clueless

 

Are you his broken tool?

 

Or just his selfless fool

 

Baby, he was never schooled on how to treat you

 

He acts brand new

 

You escape from being the same old you

 

To find a new dude

 

That takes care of you

 

And buy you fancy shoes

 

You have a lot of baggage on your chest

 

You put him through test after test

 

To see if he knows best

 

You got a text

 

You guessed it was your ex

 

You were correct

 

He tried to convince you back to his nest

 

To make amends for his sinful quest

 

Your new man says “just grab my hand”

 

“I can take you away from your insanity”

 

The man you have been needing is now your reality

 

You say baby let’s stay together for an eternity
