The Antidote

Written by: Jimmy Anderson

Even the legendary Stevie Wonder,
Can see the trail of your many lies.
The storm brought lightning and thunder,
Yet I remained blind in a false paradise
The shelter which I provided
Just wasn’t good enough.
Through the dark maze I guided,
Hoping you’d follow my love.

I awoke only to discover,
That I was totally alone.
You chose another lover,
And it hurt me to the bone!

I buried all the pain,
By writing poems ‘til my fingers bled.
I thought I would go insane,
Maybe wind up lost or dead!

My heart continued to ache,
And still I constantly wrote.
Now you live with your mistake.
Leaving you was my antidote!!
