Spoken Words

You said hello,
I was intrigued.
You said you wanted to help,
I was taken in.
You said you’d be there,
Was that a lie?
You said you cared,
Was it all an elaborate trick?
You said you were sorry,
Did you even mean it?
You said goodbye,
Maybe it was a blessing in disguise.

Just Walk Away

You were my friend

Or so you often said

But time and time again

You proved that statement wrong

You regurgitated the same words

Over and over each time thinking

That they would lose the stench

Of the lies they carried with them

But you only used me

You got what you needed

Maybe you did help me out

As you schemed along the way

But ultimately it was you who lost

Someone who was a true friend

Excuse me sir

I just didn’t know

That you would

Break your promises.

Excuse me sir

I had no idea

That all along

You were toying with me.

Excuse me sir

For crying a river

The feelings I felt

Were actually real.

Excuse me sir

For having trouble

Fogeting the words

You once said to me.

Excuse me sir

For never being able

To see you again

In the same light

… the light of love has faded.

I’m Glad I Could Help

Was I just your experiment

A woman to toy with

To see what made me tick

Then turn around

And use it all on her

The one you lost before

Did you ever once

Think of how I felt

When you spoke those words

The ones that made me melt

And then in a flash

You were just gone

Moved away from here

And you never looked back

Do you know

My heart still aches

Every time I hear your name

Was I just your experiment

Did you conclude in the end

I was nothing more than a fool

Take A Peek

Hurry up

Let’s take a peek

And see the girl

That is a freak

She was taken in

And played the fool

She should have learned

Clear back in school

That things like that

Just don’t happen

There is no way

They all aren’t laughin’

Laughin’ at her

And her foolish ways

Now she cries

Both nights and days

Hurry up

And take a peek

See the girl

Whose future is bleak

The Bully

did you act all alone
or did you have an accomplice
did you set out to destroy me
or were you just playing games
did it seem like fun to you
or did you just want to embarrass me
you used my kindness
and then tuned on me
you mocked my generosity
and laughed in my face
you pushed me into a corner
and dared me to leave
I guess we know now
who never grew up
