He wooed me with such pleasurable charm.
I wondered…what if there could be more.
He did everything perfect, there was no alarm.
So I ran at full speed through his revolving door.
But his heart was elusive like a sly black cat.
As he only intended to play for a season.
He was gone before we were and that was that.
Did you ever really care or have a reason?
For a while, I cried over that star that was never in the sky.
But I should have known, he was never meant for me to keep.
He couldn’t open up, too hurt from the past or just liked to lie?
Perhaps I was his game or he was just my lesson to reap?
Now I hope you find me in some of your dreams.
And you wonder ‘what if ‘and lose some esteem.
