When the man you love, loves someone else.
You hurt and grieve.
You cry and dry your tears
He must not see you weak.
You pray and hope he would see
that you’re meant for each other.
You lie down in pain.
You sink when you can soar
You float when you can fly
You loose sight of tomorrow,s sunlight
All you see is today’s gloom
You wake up and wish for sleep
You sleep and see him in your dreams.
You keep hoping
but he’s fixed on the other woman.
You call and cut off your call
You draft a text and delete, again and again.
You wonder who she is, what she looks like, what she’s got that you don’t!
Every woman you see around him is suspect.
You spy on him, read his mails looking for a clue!
Clueless you rest in dismay and utter abandonment.
Fluttered , clustered and scattered,
you begin to loose grip
Time goes on and nothing moves him any closer to you.
You see him dancing with you in your dreams
You did your best dance steps
But the other woman danced her way in
And they both left you locked out.
Come here My dear.
Come dance with Me.
Hear my song within you,
Let the music drown your pain.
Lean on Me.
Let me wrap my Arms around you.
I love you so much more.
Look at my pains too.
I was rejected by those I loved.
I was betrayed by my very own ‘rock’
kissed by a traitor.
I was rejected and locked out.
When all I wanted was to come in.
I gave everything I had,
Till I had to give my Life
I got daggers on my hands and my feet.
When all I wanted was to give away my love.
Let him go, set him free.
Don’t fight it, don’t force it.
He’s had his dance, and made his choice.
You will dance again.
And Your man will not let you go.
Let Me hold your hands.
Till your pain is gone.
I will stand here waiting,
Till you can smile again….
Dancing away with your OWN!
