She loved him only to have her heart cease,
He pursued her to cause his heart to beat,
She loved him only to shed tears of loneliness,
He lied to her to keep her near to feed his need,
She loved him innocently,
He hurt her openly.
sweetly charming smile,
he makes you laugh allowing you to express
joys and sadness
success and failures
never letting to much of his past away
tells you stories of dark old histories
love of money and women bodies
tells you which top looks best
ask you to wear the white jeans stretched
you thinking it is all so cute
not knowing he is entangled in a controlling mind
suddenly…questions remain hanging or half answered
to busy to hold any ‘we’ conversations
jealousy sparks if his friends like you
tries to twist everything you do
he is trapped between teen hood and man hood
not knowing which hood you need
your womanhood confuses him.
would you stay or runaway?
You uprooted my centre
Invited you were
Unjudged by me
You lacked nothing
As far as I had seen.
Then not to long after
I had sang my surrender song
Your spiral of colours did show strong
Jolting me back to Tina Turner’s song.
“What’s love got to do with it?”
Emptied like a vase of flowers
Still fresh and scented sweetly
I didn’t know of narcissistic greed
The trianglular shapes you need
Learned I to mirror your every pattern
Till you lost yourself in your own delusions
My uprooted heart no longer bothered
Cause for you alone it must become a stone.
