Now you overreact, just because I had the guts to fightback.

Starry eyed and bushy tailed I was.

So naive to you, and all you represented.

Every time I caught you out and had the sense to comment,

You tell me that ‘It’s really not like that!’

Stupidly I stayed, still charmed by your ways.

I should have known I was being played.

 

‘I’m too emotional!’ I tell a friend.

‘More like gullable.’ She replies.

‘Just like I have told you a thousand times,’ She continues.

‘Be weary of the guys that go around like they own the world.’

That does seem like good advice, but one forgets the heart that tries.

Tries to follow common sense when all the feelings don’t make sense.

So I follow my heart and I don’t trip despite the obvious.

I should have known I was being played.

 

He took my heart and tore it into little pieces.

I am one of the unfortunate that loves hard when they do.

The worst mistake of my life.

He took my heart and broke it again, again and again.

‘I care about you baby…’ smooth talking me back into his arms.

So big, brown and muscular. I can feel them around me.

Those arms that caressed Lucy, Dolapo, Shaniqua and Kyoto.

I am just another notch on his belt.

I should have known I was being played.
