    Those That Were

    Those that were
    Had no sense of right and wrong. Were in it only for them
    Didn’t make a difference if they hurt you or not,
    the object of the game was to win.
    And they succeeded in gaining your love,
    blinding you with your feelings,
    quickly gained your trust.

    Those that were
    Who were too weak to love
    Showed you their true colors, who it was they really were
    And then the flood started. The never-ending pain.
    That all consuming pain, those others gave.
    And when they were done using you, not a backwards glance they gave.
    Rang their hands, let them dry, and went on their way.
    Where were you when it was over? How were you made to feel?
    For those others left you cold, with more dreams of love to kill.
    But I promise you baby, I am no other. Those that were can never be
    Now I am all that there is. Those that were shall never be.

    Telling that person, trying to make them see that just because the past has failed them, doesn't mean that you will. Very nice piece regarding trust.
