    Cushion

    Don’t use me as a cushion to soften the blow
    The blow that love decided to throw
    Stand up and just let the rhythm flow
    Hiding behind your true feelings
    Confused, upset, disappointed, angry at the world
    Because you got your heart broken.

    Don’t use me as a cushion
    Until you find the one you are looking for.
    For the one could be right before your eyes.
    Your eyes are open but yet you still cannot see

    The love the compassion the warmth
    That one can give to another is offered to you
    You say you can see but you really don’t or are you just to scared.

    Scared believing that this too is not real and may fade
    Fade unto your pass like all the rest
    Not giving it your best
    Ignoring it like it is a pest.

    You call us just friends
    Yea but you show mixed signs
    Saying this and doing that
    Allowing it to be more than what you said it would be
    But this will never come your lips

    I know better
    I know what lies in your heart, soul and mind
    So go on be true this
    And stop acting new to this

    Sometimes people use others to comfort the pain
    from a broken heart and end up hurting the person that
    soothes them.

    Beware of people on the rebound.

    Nice scribe! :)
