    As I lay here
    Thinking of the
    Many times you
    Left me alone,
    I realize the
    Extent of both
    Our pain.

    I selfishly used the
    Only power I had
    Against you,
    Hurting you and
    Carelessly thinking
    By doing so, I’ll
    Have more to gain.

    Now it kills me
    To know that this
    Very thing I kept away
    From you, you found
    In someone else.
    How stupid of me to
    Think that you’ll stay
    And play along with my game.

    But yet, even though
    I was withholding my
    Love from you, it’s
    Funny how you
    Was withholding the same.

    Seems like both were playing games. Sometimes we play games when we think we have run out of choices. This was an intense flow, well written. Nice to read something new from you.

    Very nice GeeGee
    He did leave you alone.

    Maybe you were not wrong to deny,
    if you were not the apple of his eye.

    Satisfaction found in another place .
    Isn't in actual truth or fact satisfaction at all.
