YOU TRASHED MY LOVE
You taught my heart to hate
On missing out on our first date
And when I asked,
Innocently as a gent’ man does,
Walked out on me through that gate.
You claimed I wasn’t man enough
As if I was man and woman half.
Cash and love I had
And tenderness, gave through my hands
Always there as a helping hand
In good and the worst bad.
When you were sick in the ward
Wasn’t I the reason you were glad?
Warming your blood when sad,
Creating that beautiful smile on your face?
Forming that crescent on your lips
Shedding moonlight on our now lost love
Reviving the stars beneath those sky-blued gem eyes?
I knew not hate loomed in love
And love loomed in hate,
Only that fate
Dictated what to dominate.
In me hate is great,
I gave you my love to taste
You turned it to waste.
