I'm not sure what to say to you
Seemed to have lost my voice So I guess writing it down on paper Is my only other choice Only a tiny part of me is sad You decided to go a different way Not ready for something serious At least I'm not today I may be drenched in melancholy But the fault lies not in you Depressed long before we met Your presence made me feel less blue I couldn't describe accurately The plethora of emotions inside The strongest of these is envy Of the one who gets to be by your side Right behind is indignation In a close second place At the way you handled it Without any tact or grace I'm just waiting for you to talk to me I suppose you don't possess the nerve But how can you look at me and believe This treatment is what I deserve? I wasn't set on a relationship It was you who started this And it was your actions that convinced me I was more than just lips to kiss You told me you liked me I warned you wouldn't for long Your doubt warmed my center But it has now been proven wrong I recall you saying that you didn't want What you had with her before But maybe she has really changed And it won't be hard anymore I wish you both all the happiness And luck this cold world can hold Sincerely hope she is the one To stand by you as you grow old I don't know when my turn will come Or if my heart is capable of love at all But what is meant to be will be It's just not our time to fall I do not know if you see it how I do Maybe I am the one to blame For making myself too available Smothering the flame But you appeared to be an adult I assumed you were somewhat mature Different from my troublesome ex Who just made me insecure Only to find out you're no better Lying like all the rest Omission is still a form of deception I must say I'm unimpressed I thought we were closer than that That you would give me honesty What have I done to make you scared Of telling the truth to me A simple explanation was all it would take For why I was being neglected Instead dwelled on my every flaw Wondering which was rejected To discover it's not me at all But someone else that caused this change Actually comes as a relief Although that might sound strange I understand that love never dies Because I'm going through the same thing too The only difference is that the person I miss Replaced me with someone new Which I am surprisingly grateful for Because we are better off apart No matter how much it kills my soul Or paralyzes my heart If he wasn't taken I truthfully don't know If I would be able to resist Although I know he is no good for me Tempting urges persist So I wish you would have been forthcoming And shown me a level of respect I can't tell if it is my feelings Or your ego you're trying to protect You behaved like a gentleman Until you didn't want me around And instead of letting me down properly You didn't bother to make a sound But I guess you don't owe me a reason No commitment hanging between It is just that personally I have a problem with People who say what they don't mean I process conversation in a literal way When speaking aloud I follow through So naturally my brain presumes everyone else Is inclined to mean what they say too I forget sometimes how cheap talk is And guys want to come off as smooth and sweet So they fill our ears with ******* without even missing a beat You told me you would be right back Left me waiting up all night But that wasn't that big of a deal Didn't want to seem uptight Then you took off on a road trip Without saying farewell That's when I suspected something was up It was fairly easy to tell Then when I found out you drove past my house Spent time right down the road And didn't bother to stop for a second That's when I wanted to explode You blew me off two days in a row Yet give your attention to a ******* Do you get how low that made me feel? Like you just used me to hit and quit (it) And then when you finally show your face You barely speak two words to me I didn't know what pushed you away Just wished I was able to see It wasn't until later that night I saw her Facebook story posts And it dawned on me that I Wasn't actually what you wanted the most Don't know why you couldn't just say so Would have saved me a lot of frustration The only thing I deduce is that you Weren't man enough to handle confrontation Communication is key that is true To understanding and resolution Yet your cowardice tricked you into the false belief Avoidance the appropriate solution Running away from friction Because you lack the bravery Has really shown your true colors And I don't like the hues I see I shouldn't have gotten my hopes up When we had hardly just begun But I sensed a genuine attraction And with you always had fun But history outweighs sparks Shouldn't come as a surprise But if you regret it don't come crawling back Because I refuse to be your consolation prize
So sick of jerks
I was never told
To behold The tears Carrying all my fears To let them flow For the glow To pay the price For snatching the prize To let someone die On the mere roll of the die I was never told To behold The dance of the fairies Amongst fires in the prairies Of the sacrifice For the fool’s paradise I was never told To behold The danseuse death In her fight with fate The glory bequeath With the fory dead I was never told To prepare myself To fight herself To wrench my prize From someone her size I was never told To behold People’s fate In someone’s gait To let the decision Be forsaken of vision I was never told To behold The dance of the dead As if they had never bled Their waking up again Out of deign not disdain I was never told To behold The history being rewritten And the mysteries being smitten..
I was never told.

Thanks, dear reader, I am nothing without you pulling on my threads.
I told the truth when all we had to go on was lies
Though the truth had no real value because deception had been glamorised I acted with integrity and I did what I knew to be right You put on your crafty masquerade and collected deceit's first prize
because we all know immorality is so often rewarded
You have the power to ****
I have the power to birth your babies First prize goes to me
taking first prize for power
more a turn away than a love that is wanting one to stay run as quickly as the wind if you feel your loves a prize to win
If love was not hard
It would not be rewarding Trophies must be earned
It wouldn't be a prize if anyone could win it
