Love Found And Lost

It's about how love can be a one sided affair and how people mistake devotion for being manipulated

Expectations of sincerety

The irony was never lost on me

You expect others to tear themselves apart for you

But when the time came for empathy

You were devoid of sympathy

 

I spent days away and you blamed me for your failures

But time has hardened my skin and I couldn't care less

I spent time away and now I know to be happy 

Even if you never loved me, even feigned interest

 

Gave my self to love without logic

Trapped myself away from knowledge

You demanded nothing but the best from me

But when the moment came for an embrace

You turned around, condemned, disgraced

 

I spent days away and you blamed me for your failures

But time has hardened my skin and I couldn't care less

I spent time away and now I know to be happy

Even if you never loved me, even feigned interest

 

It's more dangerous than highway traffic babe

Because you never felt the same 

Sweet manipulation better than any affection 

A stab in the back feels better than any kiss

At least you won't be missed

Won't be missed when I leave

 

 

The End
