We were made for each other yet we don’t understand each other
We love one another but we still despise each other.
We believed in rumours and focused not on our feelings and emotions.
I got swayed away hoping to find solace in your arms. But they were just a fantasy.
I was once your priority but now I don’t even have a place in your heart.
Despite having you I thought I was enough yet I was still obsessed with you because I know your feelings ain’t genuine.
Steadily you wish to see me in tears
After spending years together.
Those empty space you left behind
Made me reminisce on the past and asked my self if we were ever meant to be.
You care not about my gloomy face
All you care for is for me to just be there.
You ain’t interested in my story
You care about romance and all.
Should I blame your maker?
He’s not at fault though.
We ain’t get it straight
All your words ain’t right
You know how much I care
But I can’t even dare
Dare to tell you my mind
For am not on your mind.
Fought tirelessly with my heart
So we can hurt together.
All those blistering wounds ain’t
Showing sign of helping up.
I mustered up courage to let go of
those feelings but I was addicted to you
You were the poison and I am the antidote
To the poison she left behind.
I always thought I would sink ,
So I dare not swim because you won’t
Be there to rescue me while drowning.
