After The Affair

You can say sorry

All you want

And truly mean

What you say

But when you’ve been burnt

All that pain and hurt

Doesn’t ever

Just go away


The Bargain

Who knows
when our
time will
come

But I fear
it’s not
just yet

For you
have to
forgive
yourself

And I
have to
forget

Imploded

Concerning affairs

Of the heart

I was once a master

But when he died

I lost my mind

And now I’m a complete disaster


Ready To Implode

It
isn’t
you

That
I don’t
trust

Honestly,
it’s
me

My
mind
is

No
longer
robust
enough

To
deal
with

Such
trickery

I Should’ve Known Better

It isn’t that you lied,

It’s that I believed you.

That’s what hurts.


Support

I really
cannot
stay,
she said,
it is time
for me
to go
back

It’s the
only way,
she said,
to get
my life
on track

I will come
with you,
he said,
you needn’t
be on
your own

I’m here to
help you
through,
he said,
so you’ll
never
be alone

You Caused It

When everyone else

Thought the worst

I stayed with you

Your pain I nursed

Yet when things changed

And they turned on me

You hung me out

For all to see

That is really

What hurt the most

Although I’d helped you

And remained so close

You joined in with them

And betrayed me

Never once repaying

My courtesy

So that’s why now

All is said and done

I’m more than happy

Calling you a cunt


The Better Person

I loved you,

When no one else did.

Remember that.

Because You’re Worth It

You’ll be here all day

She said

There really isn’t much to find

Well I will never stop looking

He said

Until the end of time


Digging For Gold

Kindness
lives
within
you

He
said

Of
that
I am
the
judge

Then
by all
means
try to
find it

She
said

Beneath
the
fucking
sludge

Gullible

He never did finish that sentence

Or did he help me to fly

He soon did away with the pretence

And left me high and dry


Learning to Fly

No,
she
said,
I don’t
think
I can

Just
trust
me,
he
said

‘And So The Conversation Turned’

You can deny it

All you want

Claim that you

Would never stray

But if I was to check

What’s on your neck

The truth would be plain as day


Love Bites

You
wore
your
roll
neck
jumper

So
you
thought
I wouldn’t
see

But
believe
me,
I know
full
well

Those
marks
weren’t
left
by me

Used

And we all know why that is, don’t we?

We all know what you stole

Any trust in men

Was taken when

You denied me any control


Don’t Touch Me

People
like me
can never
be loved

It’s something we
won’t allow

People
like me
can never
be loved

We simply don’t
know how

Tit For Tat

Don’t you dare

Question me

Like you’re

Any fucking better

I know

What you both did

Don’t forget

I read her letter

The Strength Within

I remember

That day

When my doubts

Fell away

And I walked on broken glass

Now with veins

Of ice

I wouldn’t

Think twice

About kicking your sorry ass

One Tap Away (Friends)

If ever you need someone

You don’t have to worry

As I’ll be there

Like a shot

Please never question

If you can call me

As I’d rather listen to you

Than not

Calling It Quits

I should have trusted you

She said

And let you through the wall

I didn’t try hard enough

He said

In fact I didn’t really try at all

Dissociation

To not know

Who to trust

Certainly fucking hurts

But to be unsure

Of ones own self

Is infinitely worse

Not Her, You

You can tell me you don’t think she’s pretty

And that there’s nothing more to say

But I’ve been here before

And can spot a whore

From a thousand miles away

Twice Shy

Do you think you can trust again

He said

Perhaps offer a little reprieve?

There really is no point

She said

As people always leave

Gut Instinct

You asked me

To run away with you

So, hesitantly, I did

And it was fun

Until you left

You fucking lying prick

The Godless Ones

Some find it easier to deify

Rules bestowed from up high

And trust in his miraculous plan

But I feel it wiser

To be your own advisor

Than rely on the thoughts of a man

Rusty

Please
don’t
be
scared

He
said

There
really
is no
need

It’s only
because
it’s been
a while

She
said

Since
I’ve
done
the dirty
deed

High Maintenance

I’m not looking for just anyone

For not just anyone will do

It’ll take someone superhuman

To survive what I’ll put them through

Precipice

Grab
onto
this

He
said

It’ll
be
fine

It’s
one
I made
myself

I’m
not
sure

She
said

It
might
not be
safe

I’ve
seen
you
put
up a
shelf
