Double standards

The expectations given to me I 
have not met
Unlike others I can't always 
forgive and forget
Like the time you said whole 
heap of lies to me
And you wonder why I have an 
issue with honesty
I haven't quite met up to your 
But all that glitters is not as it 
Like the time you made me feel 
so unworthy
All those times I cried out, I 
suppose you never heard me
You never understand until you 
experience the same
Then suddenly it becomes 
acceptable-you sound so lame
Like the time when I became 
lost in the crowd
But to air my concerns, 
somehow it's not allowed
But lo and behold if you was to 
feel lost too
You expect a fuss and to be 
molly cuddled too
Like the time I explained my 
true fears
Why ask if you don't like what 
you hear
Like the time when you said 
you're always here for me
Hello.........I'm still waiting for 
your company
Maybe I'm looking at the glass 
half empty
As the things said don't 
manifest to be
Could I be too analytical so that 
I don't understand?
Like the joker in a pack you've 
dealt me your hand
