Too little, two face

Too little, two face

01b5b1b687028700bc66fc11f540fcba

You must lie in the bed, that you have made?

Maybe that’s why I always slept on the couch.

Made it easier to go, as I had never stayed,

ask any of my Ex’s and they’ll bitterly vouch.

There was never a need, to even kick off my boots,

before the sun could rise, I was out the back door.

Never gave enough time to plant my own roots,

treated love as a dried up flower, I never cared for.

The more they would hold on, to a precious moment,

the harder I would work, to erase it completely.

Beating you down like an unworthy opponent,

after tears run dry, you’ll wish you didn’t meet me.

As cliche’ as it is, the saying goes, “too little, too late”

It doesn’t even matter that I am different now.

It just wasn’t meant to be, thank goodness for fate,

in a way, I helped you, if you can believe that somehow.

As we all take the bad, which outweighs the good,

no matter how good the good was, it is completely forgotten.

I can repaint the trash, even convert to the priesthood,

in the end, the truth is, this boy was downright rotten.

    We put so much emphasis on intimate relationships, yet so few of us (myself included) are any good at them. Perhaps schools should institute a mandatory “How not to be a Douchebag” curriculum.

      Yes but most of us “douchebags” are so full of ourselves that we don’t think there is an issue until we “grow up” and then we just have a sac of remorse and regret. As long as you can learn from the mistake and not repeat it (knowing that you are, an above said douchebag) then you can redeem yourself…. maybe. who knows? Rocket science makes more sense to me. lol

        Lol, rocket science makes more sense to me too. I do know people who “grew up” and gave up on their douchey ways, but it wasn’t easy.

        Making time to write in spite of work is something most people never do. Keep rolling!
