A woman blinded and couldn’t see
Being in love with her is all I’ve wanted to be
Through the years…through the tears
I never thought I would go through this fear of us being apart
Since day one you’ve always had my heart
Times changed and we’ve changed with the times
It seems I wasn’t looking into the same eyes
I couldn’t see my reflection or direction of our love
It came to a halt at a cross section
Now I’m asking myself questions
Where did we go wrong?
How did I believe our love was strong?
Why did she seek comfort in another man arms when at night I was keeping her warm?
Now the tears flow every night
6 years…I think I earn every right
To fall in love again…I think I never might
How do you turn love on and off like a light?
I’m heartbroken
I would start smoking and drinking
Then I will really be sinking
Recover and reflect…what was I thinking?
So I avoid
I have my pride and joy my little boy he’s all I need
We’re for an eternity
When he gets older I will tell him how his mother murdered me
It was premeditated
She could’ve walked out if things weren’t situated
She stayed and played with my feelings
She had other dealings planning children
My stomach sour
I can’t eat…don’t have the power
Losing love is too much to devour
I’ve lost weight and sleep fewer hours
Nothing routine but the screams
How can a woman that cheated 3 times be the girl of my dreams?
This is my life
I’ve pressured her to go to college and I sat home and sacrificed
I’ve cooked and cleaned
Well…she never did any of them things so I can’t complain
Lakiesha and Jerimaine…I thought that would never change
Our flames got douse by another man’s game
So he gets the win
If she cheated on me what makes you think she won’t cheat on him?
I love you…I’ve never put anybody above you
I’ve trusted you
Even when times I didn’t want to touch you I’ve hugged you and embraced you
I’ve kissed you and tasted you
Now that I hate you I don’t have to make you my life, my wife or anything in-between
My Queen…my dream
You had your chance with me
You lost it
Now I feel like I was an abortion
An orphan searching for love but finding myself lost more often.
