    I can’t be your silly ***** no more
    I am sorry that you’ve mistaken me for your whore
    But the fortunate thing for us is that I am smarter than this
    And so I just decided to do what I need to do, cause now I’m pissed
    I have never asked you for anything, no nothing I gained
    And I catered to your every insecurity and remained
    Dormant as if lying locked up in a damp cell
    And if I must be locked down, then I may as well be in jail
    Cause this drama isn’t wasn’t what I had in mind
    It just hit me that maybe you are not my kind
    Not the kind of man I need
    I should’ve thought of that before planting seeds
    But the cultivation of them I will take care of
    All my children need is real, unconditional love
    And you’ve have just let me know that you aren’t really with me
    It just took for me to get thrown around to see
    That love isn’t an achievement you care to obtain
    Instead of sunshine you’ve bought nothing but rain
    I kept trying to make myself think you were being real
    But the wounds you keep inflicting on my heart can’t heal
    Because you keep compounding them one on another
    Brother **** I must be insane
    You keep playing me again and again
    And then you would dare come home to blame
    Me
    The bread winner, the faithful, the pregnant, the tasteful
    The witty, the meek, the sexy sleek freak in the bedroom
    Look out, now you must give me room
    Because you bruised the woman that I show publicly
    And you think that you can cure everything with an “I’m sorry” *** apology
    Please, I have catered to your needs and it has taken the best days away from me
    So this is it. I will get over you and all this dumb ****.
    In simplistic terms there is no us.
    There is just a me.

    If a relationship feels like a prison, eventually you have to break free...nicely posed.

    I had an experience like this, eternal. I had been taking my ex's crap for so very long. One day we were talking and I was getting b*tched out for no reason yet again, and suddenly I realized I had had enough. My capacity to take it and put up with it has been maximized. It was one of the clearest moments of my life. That's where it feels like to me that you're at (correct me if I'm wrong). It's a poweful place indeed. Good for you, sister. Peace and strength to you.

    Never Silly

    You were never silly from the jump...
    Just learned he wasn't truly what you needed..
    And definitely not what you want!!! ;)
    Just remember you were never silly from the beginning...
    and be relieved of the stress that is now ending!!!

    Excellent flow my sister... I truly enjoyed... and could somewhat relate to...
    God Bless, and thank you for your words!!!!!
