Now I See
Yesterday, there was love in a dazzled heart
For I had spotted you among some shimmer
Freely, I was blinded by your spots. I hid in your mind.
I was to busy worrying about what you thought of me.
There are no flaws , no bawls in a diamond paradise.
But in due time, it was crystal clear as I seen it for myself.
You are not my shining star. It would not go out.
And if it did --the next night it would return the same.
You are not my heaven on earth. If you are than
why do I feel like hell when we are together.
I close myself inside and let the ache take its course.
O' how I've been burned from pouring my heart's blood.
I spilled my guts to you. I shared my world.
Like a naive girl, seeing love before her eyes.
Too bad for you, the woman in me couldn't hold her
disguise any longer. I came to you in truth and asked
for it in return. Serendipity must have left before I met you.
I should have ran...fast and furious from a conniving man.
Your flesh reeks of foul acts. Your spirit is perverse.
Still, I'm not the judge. I can't hold you accountable.
Everyone has a judgment day. My right is to forgive you.
So I put on my big girl panties; tell "common sense" to
step right in and kindly give you a sweet goodbye.
