    i had cried many a night
    at one time
    wanted to take my own life

    cuz i yearned for love
    and summertimes when
    it felt that
    you and me was right...

    i twisted myself with anger
    back and forth fixin
    broken windows
    the draft still came in

    of course

    i looked to you and
    wanted your support
    prayed to God you'd
    see things clear

    months later, finally I
    can see more sunlight
    knowing i wanted something
    you could not give

    because u did
    not own it

    i had an issue of
    love for you
    loyal undying and true
    but you insulted my

    plea for harmony

    with bruising attacks
    unconstuctive criticisms rode
    my back, a gentle word from
    you was far inbetween and few

    i wanted u to be happy
    cause i wanted to be happy
    but i suppose it was too good
    to be true

    your friends could not take it
    you found a treasure and
    might make it
    after all, just like that

    you allowed them
    to take what little we had
    alll back.

    Sounds like this was from the heart, I could feel it. Writing helps, this I know.
