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

The Break-up

It was all an act
That is the fact
You only used me
Then set me free
You didn’t care
You weren’t fair
My heart was broken
The words were spoken
I loved you
And you knew
But left anyway
So here I stay
Sad and alone
Waiting by the phone
For any hope
I barely cope
All because of you
And what you do
But thanks for the ride
I know I tried
It did not last
The stone was cast
Goodbye to you
Now we are through
