We Could've Been Dope

You would've been perfect if you just kept your mouth shut
or so I would have led myself to believe that you were perfect.
We could've been dope.
Or so I would have led myself to believe.
It was all a dream,
But I thought it was reality.
Confusing my brain,
and tricking my mind into believing,
that the time spent with you,
was all I needed to get by.

But it wasn't.
You were selfish and I was foolish.
A fool in love.
No, more like lust.
This fragile heart,
you never got to touch.
But my body,
That was yours.
I gave it to you willingly.
Thinking that was all you'd ever need.
And it was, or so it seemed.
But I wanted more.
That's just how I am.
I wanted more
and so you ran,
away from me.
I could never make you stay.
Even now,
I can't stand to have you near me,
because it's like you're still far away.
I don't blame you anymore.
It's a good thing that I walked out the door.
Cause you could never give me everything I wanted.
And I could never be what you wanted me to be.


  1. Brittney, You've penned the classic love lost tale in modern vernacular. Well done.

  2. Love (and lust) is sometimes like that - love unrequited hurt6!
