I Can't

Updated on January 30, 2014

I can't tell you how many times

you've taken away my dignity

reducing me to the level you're on

I can't explain why you're so crude

I can't explain why you're a fool

You have no grace, you are a

disgrace to your race

I can't say why you are a hypocrite

but its written across your forehead

I can't understand where your thinking

comes from, the dark ages, Antediluvian

I can't feel anything but rage,

I can't fell anything close to love

I can't feel forgiveness

I can't feel hope

I can't believe you deceived me

into thinking you were more

than what you appeared to be

I can't believe I bought into

the lies that drips from your lips

I can't believe to my shame I

bought into your game

fool me once shame on me

fool me twice, I ought to be

I can't see the future

my vision is cloudy

I can't win in a game of all

give and no take

I can't loose what little

self-respect that I have

I can't let you smother

my dreams

If I continue on this journey

I'll wake one morning

hating myself more than

I hate you

I can't let you take away

any more of my Identity

I can't be the court jester

I can stand and walk out

this damn door

      hmmm the games people play can be so hurtful. So sorry this has happened to you. Writing helps though, I think. You really put yourself out there on this one, hope whomever it was gets to read it. You have now met my purple lizard, it helps a great deal to have a wonderful muse. Best of luck darlin', and good health and peace to you, Charlie
