On a regular day some girl catches your eye,
You feel you gotta be with her or you gotta at least try,
Eventually she enchants you and engulfs your heart,
You can't see it's the beginning of you being torn apart.
In just a few days your mind lies to you saying search time has ended,
All problems with the others this one girl has mended,
So enchanted by her you are, you stop staring at others,
You disregard the warnings of those who look out for you like brothers.
Love is blind, and now she's messed up your damn sight,
Even planted in her darkness, you only see her light,
She's shooting you, she's stabbing you, even cutting off your air,
Your friends are telling you but you won't see no matter how hard you stare.
N then your destroyed, there goes all your glee,
She's left you for death, that's when you finally see,
This one you gave your heart to and loved so much,
The one you swore would be the only one you'd touch.
You thought one day those bells would chime n you'd b sealed forever,
But then then reality kicked in, forever became never,
Those times that spelled pleasure now play like n endless taunt,
You think you'll never escape this never ending haunt.
It goes from "honey, baby, sweetheart, boo",
To "You'll never escape the pain that I'll bring 2 you",
If you knew from the beginning you might have still taken this gamble,
Just for the simple pleasures before the mind scramble.
In your own space sometimes the tears flow like the rain,
Only in secret do you express your pain,
In the company of others you seem to be just fine,
Such a bright beacon, even the sun you outshine.
Anger, hatred n resentment have you thinking females are all the same,
You close your heart to girls as if the entire fleet is to blame,
Remaining closed might never lead you to that true joy,
And if you let in another she may just toss you like an old toy.
"What then do I do Michael-Shane?" they come in secret to ask,
I guess I could say I'm given a very tedious task,
I say "I believe that true love is something we're all destined to feel",
You should always try again, but give your heart enough time 2 heal".
