    In a state of confusion,
    Trying hard not to lose it,
    You ain't ready for me at all,
    Take advantage of my love and abuse it.
    But this is what gets me,
    Been trying to get at me for two years strong,
    And when I give you the chance you say you've been waiting on,
    It feels like maybe I made you wait too long.
    I should've noticed at first,
    When you acted into me only from time to time,
    But I knew you were getting over some stuff,
    Who's fault is that, not mine.
    But me being me,
    My conscience would kill me if I just said "***** it"
    Because I know you're a good person,
    It just seems that your last girl cursed it,
    For everyone that comes after her,
    And d*mnit, it's not fair,
    Because I know we are good for eachother,
    So why do you even still care?
    Because you have a good heart,
    She didn't seem to care at all,
    Until she found out about me,
    And now back to you she's trying to crawl.
    Don't fall for it babe!
    Cause she'll hurt you again,
    You say you'll never go back,
    Can't take the hurt she gave you back then.
    But don't give me the short end of the stick,
    Cause I don't need your half *ss b*llsh*t,
    Either treat me like I deserve,
    Or I'm gonna kick that *ss to the curb!
    Although I'd hate to make that choice,
    Why can't you get over it and quit being scared?
    I'm not out to get you like her,
    I don't even wanna take it there.
    I know you can do better,
    You say you're looking out for me,
    How? By all of a sudden cutting off the affection?
    Explain that sh*t to me, please!
    If you didn't want to take it there,
    We never should have started,
    Should have just stayed friends like before,
    That way I won't feel so brokenhearted.
    At times I feel like you just need to be single,
    Like at that party we went to,
    When you got too d*mn drunk,
    And forgot the CORRECT way to mingle!
    Well, I guess I will say this,
    I am not gonna let you string me along,
    Have me listening to all these sad love songs,
    I'm gonna let you do what you feel is right,
    And I know right now that's not me, but I'll get over it,
    I'll be alright.

    He'll realize one day that the biggest loss was his. Many have been down this road that you described so well. I felt your words poet.
