RATHER THAN NEGLECT DID ANY MAN EVER TELL YOU WHAT TO EXPECT?
Did any man ever take the time to tell you what to expect?
Did any man ever threaten you with natural born neglect?
Did any man ever provide the diamonds and gems you should own?
And did he ever threaten to leave you languishing in a sea of tears all alone?
If a man ever threatened you with what you didn’t deserve
And did nothing but fracture and fray your every nerve
Did you ever play a game according to only his rules,
While leaving you lamenting a group of garish ghouls?
Have you ever wished to wander this world from west to east,
while summoning the wisdom to forget the wretched beast?
Have you ever said the things he really needed to hear,
A man who your heart and soul simply could not bear
Have you ever prayed that a lady would condemn him forever?
Have you ever played a man and taught him that you are god damned clever?
Have you ever gone to sleep praying he awake with an illness foretold
Not a fatal disease but just one that leaves him broken and cold/
Did you ever neglect and disavow that which you didn’t expect
because you are the type of woman I would never reject
however, the way you would treat me remains a mystery
it could be beauty or like that man of yours, misery
