    Oh! You’re ready now! Yeah I see!
    Man made you upset, so now you run to me!
    Doesn’t work like that, not that type of party!
    Never a second option! You’ve missed out. Sorry!
    A chance of a lifetime, basically you had!
    You chose to straddle the fence! That’s to bad!
    Complication an uncertainties was your pick to keep!
    All the while missing out on what lies in me!
    Someone a little different, nothing like you’ve seen!
    A sheep in wolves clothing, come to set you free!
    Free from all the worrying on how your man should be!
    No hard feelings though, still much love!
    Maybe we can try again when you grow up!
    But let me give you credit where credits due!
    You’ve done something no one else can prove!
    That even a man like me falls into a grove!
    Loves tender trenches, a feeling so smooth!
    Only to get bumpy, you never really wanted me!
    Just like my company when your man was acting funny!
    But believe me honey you’ll know how it feels
    They say what goes around, comes around
    It’ll be your turn to get reeled!
    Pulled into a situation, feelings leaving know control
    But it’s okay! I’ll be there to console
    Tell you I told you so, then comfort and hold!
    For this is a lesson to be learned! Time well spent!
    You’ll learn to go for the gusto, stop being so content
    Stop being so predictable! Start to experiment!
    Do things a little different, go out on a limb!
    Live life to the fullest! Do things on a wimb!
    Just don’t lie dormant, stuck in the same routine!
    Staying with a brotha complain!
    While making excuses, how he’s not THAT mean!
    Making excuses for someone whom doesn’t treat you like a queen!
    For experience is the best teacher! This I know!
    When experience grabs a hold of you, remember you’ve been told!
    And just so you know, these things I write or not out of spite
    Simply, me believing I might have been that knight
    To sweep you off your feet! Walk you through the promise land!
    You an I in the park strolling hand in hand!
    And if there’s know story book ending!
    Trust me I’ll get over you!
    Always keep in mind, I’ll only be #1 never 2!

    I loved this one. Always would have that in the back of your mind that you weren't #1, so you just have to be real about it. This was posed on point.
