    Your lack of self control disgusts me
    Your ignorance repulses me
    Don't speak to me of love
    You want me to be a good wife
    Cook and clean
    Have sex with you at a drop of a dime
    You are a boy
    Can't comprehend the meaning of being a man
    You lie
    I hurt
    You cheat
    I stay
    Always thinking the grass is greener on the other side
    Refuse to be true
    Sleepless nights
    Crying myself to sleep
    You don't know my worth
    You've abused my love
    Stomped on my heart
    Good wife
    Why should I be
    I will not be your doormat
    Ignored by you
    I am angry as hell
    Not willing to lay in the bed that you made
    I don't need you
    I barely want you
    Go somewhere else
    To find your good wife

    So many tend to think the grass is greener on the other side...
    Only to find that... what looks like grass, is Weed!
    Do they know the difference? ...only when they get "Poison Ivy".
    And he who plucks weeds...will forever be lost in the wilderness.

    u hit spots in the yard untouched
    one who see it through the reflected glass
    not aware of his true reward until the well
    run dry !

    i feel the pain
    its time for you to come out of the rain
    a real love is what you should gain
    finding a real man always so hard to attain
    but baby gurl you must maintain
    the brotha insane
    vain

    because he cant see what a good wife you are
    Shake it off my sista!!!!!!!!
    luv Nevar!!!!!!!

    Just have to wonder how someone can have a blessing before them, and refuse to see it. One day, he'll wish that he did. I felt the ache in this.
