He Tried So Hard

He left you and she left you
Or is it you left her or you left him
You say you were being used
But you couldn’t keep your fingers closed

You left because he did not bring you a red rose flower
A red dress and did not take you out for valentines day
He told you he was busy at work, he had a class
But you wouldn’t even listen

He later asked to take you on a date on Friday night
He came with a punch of flowers
Knelt and said he was sorry for not being there for valentines
He lost control of himself and started crying

Your lack of empathy and pride took over you
When an old boyfriend showed up and you winked at each other
You threw the flowers away, pushed him away
And said to his ears ‘It is the only way’
He tried so hard to convince you to stay but
Your love for him disappeared into thin air

He couldn’t stand the rejection and heartbreak
A thousand eyes looking at him in the restaurant
As he gathered himself and drove away
After all it was the only way

Ten years later you got married to your new fiancee
Subjected to domestic violence and sexual abuse
You grew even thinner and weaker
Lost all the energy, everything had no meaning
Yet there is nothing you could do to stop it
But you later decided to get a divorce

He later found you in a local bar
Drunk, overtaken by fear and depression
He helped you and you fell in love with him again
He erased your past and promised to make you whole again
Because he still cares and loves you...
