you’ve said a lot of things
I fell for it all.
My mind painted a perfect picture
When i should have relied on insecurity,
At least then I’d know what to expect
Like a sheltered tribesman
Speaking in foreign tongue
And scarred by my right of passage.
I only knew what was in front of me.
Until I was enslaved
And brought into civilization
A world i never knew existed
Flourishing with emotions which names I’ve never known
To go with the life I’ve never had
And you watched as I evolved
And praised you like an almighty God
I just wanted to be everything that you ever wanted,
So i became everything that you ever wanted,
I should have known that’s exactly what you never wanted
Since you left me for everything that you ever wanted.
With no remorse
You ate me whole
And washed me down
With a glass of wine
Foolishly I allowed it
I believed in miracles
As warriors find war
Lovers find love
Both remain constant
In the heat of the moment
Maybe that’s evolution
Learn, Adapt, Thrive
I’ve learned to love,
Adapted to the world you’ve shown me,
And my heart thrives
For your return.
