Your Cheating Heart is Gonna Tell on You
Dishonesty is all about the small acts we can take and then think, 'No, this not real cheating.' So if you think that the main mechanism is rationalization, then what you come up with, and that's what we find, is that we're basically trying to balance feeling good about ourselves.
You came to me with your silly
lies about love, you had me captured for a moment.
But I did not release all my heart & soul to you,
because I was once heart broken and I said I
will never love again. So my eyes and ears were
always open for lurking.... like you.
My Love goes deep and my heart I do not
wish for it to be played on like an instrument.
I am sweet I am loving but turn me off and the
I will show you the other side of me that I’ve got, its
a side rare and unseen. I am a Capricorn and we
don’t take matters like these lightly.
You started acting weird when I noticed I just stood
by let you think that I am your fool. You got cold and
I decided to cope with you I’d just get colder, maybe
like ice? Because what you were doing simply wasn’t anything
Yet so caring, I still stood there hoping this cloudy
mist would disappear. Instead she came along and
addled your brain, you fell like a prey to his predator.
Your soul she encased in her hands, locking them tightly,
perhaps you tried to let go and unwrap yourself. From this
witch clutches, she surely had you in her grip and guess what?
You started liking it so she roped you in tighter holding
you longer than you wanted.
Telling you things your ears love to hear, feeding your
hungry soul and your lustful thirst. I saw you drowning
for months now. You were too far gone for me to pull
you back to the shore. As I looked on her claws dragged
you deeper into the depths of her lost world. I knew you
won’t surface again so I decided to watch no more
and go on home.
Why didn’t you tell me? Why didn’t you hurt me then? So
That I may have learned to love again? Deceit and lies
crawled all over your body and with your tongue you
spewed your lies and venom. I can smell the fragrance
of your words that she brainwashed you with. It smelt
nasty and they felt bitter.
I was angry I was upset that you made me a fool, you
left me in the cold rain and you went inside and closed
the door. I never thought you would be like this I never
knew this dirty side of you. Astonished and shocked I’d
expect the unexpected but from you? NO! Now I know
that I cannot trust anyone, now I know I am safer within
me and not without. You were too slick and sly with your
silver fox eyes, gazing all outside!
I know you think you hurt me and you thought
It casual so you kept playing the game. Waiting for it
To look as though it was my fault. I have been broken
hearted once and your little tricks I sat and watched all
that time. You think I was unaware of your little secret.
You had no idea your cocoa was out in the sun & the rain
kept pouring on it….. What I’d say is all greedy dogs
lose their bones and I will not seek revenge. I’d buy myself
a rocking chair and when Karma starts to apply it to you.
I wanna sit back and rock, stare you in the eyes and see if
you will tell me your silly little lies. You have insulted my
Intelligence with your hypocrisy and guess what baby?
GOD DOES NOT SLEEP!!! When tears come down like
fallen rain. You'll toss around and call my name.......
Your cheating heart is gonna tell on you!!! It has already
started and am just smiling :)
