    The Headlines read "Enough"
    You said "I'm leaving you", I don't want this anymore, it's time to treat myself good. No more Wars!
    I stared as you declared your liberation.
    My butterfly has become the earth again, returning back to her roots.

    I risked your health, I stomped on your pride, you still stood tall knowing you wanted to hide. I f****d up with this woman, my wife, my oxygen.
    Now i'm on that self-life-support, separated, afraid to move.
    The women, The lies, the time, the forgetfullness of my gifted prize.

    WHY????????????????????????????????????????????????
    Some A**, different passion, different masking
    Different don't mean better.

    Our ancestors spoke

    The Creator said, "Enough"
    Son your soul is corrupt but not lost, but you must lose this Angel until you understand the blues. That's the cost!
    No guarantees of her re-capture
    Be a man, your children are watching. You're a victim of the rapture. Come on Now! Cultivate and Learn from that butterfly I gave you that turned back into the earth.

    I say to myself:
    If she treated me the way I treated her, could I still say "I love you"?
    You did!

    You tried to move on and resist, but the list of violations became excessive. The message was clear, Enough!
    No amount of tears could replace the neglect of the years, the laughter, the touch, the head scratches, the mid-night conversations, the emergency room visits we both shared with our asthmatic daughter and the morning kiss.

    I know see that you looked over me, I know now that you're not my enemy. My answers to your questions became curt and sharp. I cut your flesh with my maniputation and my mind. I wish I could change the past not the time.

    I've lost to gain, My joy is pain, Heartache skips through my vains like chidren on the playground. My blood will be given. I'm willing to change, I said it before and now we see that speeking was not enough!

    I want to meet you again as another man but with the love I found now. Take it! I hope oneday it will be enough compared to what you gave, More than Enough!

    Enough!
