Yet again love eludes me
Confusion, disappointment, longing, flood back in
Lonesome shrouds me
But destined to be it seems I am
Alone. Hopping from one to the next
Without real commitment. Because that seems to be my downfall
People only like me until they date me.
Feeling like we ruled the world only lasts until the world says otherwise.
And only then if we listen
Which she did, brought down my rule
Crush any hope for redemption
Savior from the past she could have been
Ruled together we could have
But when people are harsh critiques
It’s hard to shut them out.
For fear of being pained
Therefore paining me.
