When I think of what came between me and you
Was it that you felt you had nothing to cling to?
Was it too easy to reach for a partner so brand new?
If you’d looked in the mirror you might’ve seen what was true,
Maybe after he had soon left that should’ve given you a clue
Or was it just because I was that foolish too?
Perhaps fools like me never take their cue
Do any of us ever get our just due?
I’m a long way from a home I trusted and knew
I succumbed to the illusion seduced by the view
For who so ever survives love? Likely only a few
Now my trust and my instincts are all askew,
There’s the stench of a corpse in the air
Who said whatever happens in love and war is fair?
Didn’t anyone in your life ever teach you to care?
Is there any sympathy that anyone could share?
My days are numbered with no time to spare
More alone now than I ever would have dared
Loneliness is a trap and I’ve been ensnared
Defeated at the moment my soul was bared,
The ghost of marriages that crashed and burned
Vaporizing the passion for togetherness once yearned
You were once her lover and you have been spurned
It was a picnic at first until the weather took a terrible turn.
