    It was an all to familiar game
    A game I truly understand
    My heart was flipped, turned, and moved all around
    Like Three Card Monty and other slights of hand
    I ended up being a flash in your pan

    Can't say I didn't see it coming
    Can't say you played me for a fool
    But as it turned out, like other times before
    I became a disposable tool

    Leading me down love's highway
    You teased my every desire
    You made me feel this was something real
    And yes, oh yes, you set my soul on fire

    But without the kindling of love and truth
    The fire was quickly extinguished
    And before it had a chance to begin
    This relationship is rightly finished

    No need for you to feel guilty
    It's better for me to know sooner than later
    I don't think of you any more or any less
    I've been there before, I've done it myself

    So like you, the pain will become a memory
    And my search for true love will begin
    You'll be filed under the category called "Yesterday"
    Which follows the one called "Remember When"

    I'm all grown up
    This is part of life
    Don't know if it would have worked anyway
    Just thankful I'm able to move on
    And live to love yet another day

    BE

    this

    never feels good....afterward. But sometimes it feels soo good during, we just prolong what is inevitable. Moving on...a necessary thing many times, in order to grow.

    thank you

    reminds me of the poem I wrote "To all the sistas who've been turned out". Unhealthy relationships are too common. Thank God we were smart enough to realize it. keep blessing me with your style.
