    Look what they did to me

    I didn’t use to cry, not tears but my heart seems to outburst
    My weakness is that I can’t face this hurt
    I’m lonely homely
    I gave many girls the world and they disowned me
    Invested a lot of time, called in on my grind
    Why am I spending time trying to define?
    Is it definitive, Webster ain’t got the answer
    Medical sources can’t prove these heart attacks cause cancer

    This can’t be diagnosed by a psychologist
    Surgically it can’t operated on by neurologists
    People dwell on it, I try to postpone it
    Cuz everytime I rushed into love, my life got daunted
    Now its like I’m looking behind tint
    I keep my cash on my lap in a piece of plastic that’s bent
    Never thought of or even put into consideration
    Got me thinking it must be a worldwide federation

    Everywhere I go, I see em
    Sometimes I just wanna be em
    The power invested in them like a minister
    They did me wrong ***** so sinister
    Took my feelings for em and threw them in the canister
    My trust was swept away by the overnight janitor
    When I awoke that next day
    I carried it within my wallet like every day

    I trusted no one from there on
    Now I’m so cold, playa who wears none
    Facsimiles, trust washed away split between 7 seas
    Touching my heart is like violating a child’s extremities
    Yes but there a hope that maybe I’ll be on a island
    A cast away stranded found a bottle still surviving
    Hidden within the glass, maybe one day
    The contents may say…….

    This was heavy.......there is no cure for a broken heart
    and when the memory is recalled, it still hurts...

    Wrapped in your flow,
