A Relationship That Never Was
I now realize that I was on a brink
Of a relationship that never was
Although it was similar to one
Everything was exactly like
How I would have thought one would be like
It was almost like a mock trial
We had a couple of jurors as well
Jurors that obviously wanted to see us fail
Some that already knew what would happen
But some just like me that thought we would make it.
Oh a relationship that never was
We had to take it to court to see what exactly it was
The trial was interesting
I thought one way, you thought another
I felt one way, you felt another
The Judge decided that it was a relationship that never was
But whose fault was it other than mines?
Because I believed the fairy tales that you told me
Which were all lies,
Oh but I was “in love” or maybe I thought I was
So I was blinded by what I could see
Yes I said it correctly
I could see everything but that’s what blinded me
I didn’t want to believe it
Because I wanted this to be real
But it never was
Oh how soon we get caught up in each other
Without really knowing each other
Without taking out the time to see what we really wanted
Oh but you were just having fun
But I was so serious
And that’s how this became the relationship that never was.
After coming this far, I can honestly say that
I’m glad that it wasn’t.
I definitely was taught a lesson
About what is and isn’t.
About what’s real and unreal
About the difference between how I feel
And what I know.
Emotions flow and sometimes lead to wrong decisions
Matters of the heart sometimes require difficult decisions.
This was one that didn't
All because, it was the relationship that never was.
