Expectations

Putting the past where it belongs, behind me.



You fell short of my expectations, took up time and created frustration

You knew what to say and what to do, it's as if I was a challenge for you

You fed me lies I chose to believe, that was me being naive

It was not long before your poison set in and I chose to believe everything you did

You had me doubting myself, acting crazy, acting out

Always believing it was something I'd done, when it was you turning my words around

I was never enough you needed more, seeking out others trying to score

Constant attention is what you thought I craved, but it was you that constantly needed praise

You should have been a man and let me go instead you were selfish wanting it all

You saw through my emotions and played on my weakness, took me for granted and abused our friendship

Broken trust and scattered tears, you had me in the palm of your hands

My ego bruised, my heart scared, tear filled eyes I cannot hide

Time wasted and energy spent on you, what a shame I could not see the truth

If I could I'd turn back the clock, take back those moments that are now lost

I blame myself for falling back into your lies, a mistake I'm not willing to make twice

I've cried enough, I can't cry anymore I want to regain myself, the woman I was before

You do not define me, you never have, you just took a piece of me I'm happy not to have back

You can take back your memories there no good to me, you can't offer me what I truly need

I'm moving on, not repeating the same mistakes, back to reality, goodbye cyberspace

I'll save my heart and precious time for another who truly wants to be mine
