    In your dream world this man really loves you
    He fiens, lust, and shoot really adores you
    You don't realize that he uses you
    And just laughs at the drama he puts before you

    In his eyes you're his stepping stone
    And your house was never really his home
    And your baby, your baby, was neva his only one
    He had five more and they almost grown
    But nope, you don't see it, the damage is already done

    In your dream world that money you're missing was not his fault
    And that STD you got
    I mean, COLD you got is not
    Making your ***** rot
    Nope, it's not his fault

    It's not his fault that he lost his job a year ago
    And he went to rehab for smoking dro'
    Because it was just pressure, but from who though?
    Because in your eyes your relationship is prefect, but in reality it should have been through

    Because in your dream world you didn't see those numbers in his pants
    And you didn't talk to that girl on the phone who curse you out for talking to HER man
    And
    And your windshield really didn't cost a grand
    When that same woman
    Broke it and told you that your man had injects her with his semen
    Nope, you didn't see the other women

    And you definitely didn't feel his hand go across your face after you didn't fix his dinner
    After he didn't come in the night before and your face was redder
    Afterwards feeling more pain as you headed into the kitchen to fix the dinner
    With tears running down your face making you sadder

    You didn't see when your child was crying because he got only one toy for christmas
    When daddy was gone and your son complained about how he missed him
    No, because in your dream world he only went out to get the toys for lil' man from him
    And you didn't even notice when he came back with NO toys from him

    No, you didn't stop pretending until it came from his own mouth, "I don't love you."
    It hit like a bomb shell but all along it was right in front of you
    The signs were there and you let them slip right pass you
    Now, he claims lil' man ain't his and that single mother is you
    Because he's gone and don't care about a [email protected] thing he put you through
    Because you didn't stop pretending until he left you and everybody knew.

    Some situations in life hurt so bad that we don't want to see what is clearly there. Yes, it would hurt less in the long run if we did see them, but logic is temporarily on vacation. You have a talent for using phrases that make the reader feel the emotions. Great to read a flow from you krazelyricks.

    Krazelyricks - that was insightful ... as women we often times desire that fairy tale so badly that we don't see what everyone else can. I could really feel the pain in this piece. It was really great.
