(The disappoinment of a Sugar-Dad)
You said you’re shy but just tried the guts
As you need some aid for this and that.
If I should give in don’t think you’re smart,
But because you’re dear to this stupid heart.
The melodramas and pity claims;
I have the feel for those lousy schemes.
I’ve known the motives in your every plea
Because I was not born just yesterday.
You think am dumb but I’m not a fool;
Am not supposed to play this role.
The humiliation of doing so;
I just wonder if you can stand to it too.
I hear the laughter and the prejudice
Of my trying hard that you’d be pleased.
I am not apt for some return,
If you can’t thank at least don’t scorn.
The silent corner that I am staying in
Have known the pain I kept within.
I broke its silence with my big deep sigh
When I remember your blatant lies.
Though I have doubts if you’ll ever cry
To hear me gone or see me die.
But when love is real; though the soul is frail,
This stupid heart still wishes you well.
