No Longer Asking

Written by: Cecilia Macfarlane

I asked for honesty
.........I got filled with lies
I asked for genuine
 .......I got a guy with a disguise
I asked for consideration
........I got deliberately ignored
I asked to be prioritized 
........I got my ego floored
I asked for laughter
........I got eyes full of tears
I asked for a good listener
........I got a guy with deaf ears
I asked for happiness
........I got my hopes dashed
I asked for love
........I got my heart slashed
I asked for a gentleman
........I got a player instead
I asked for maybe too much
........I got in way over my head

So I'm no longer asking
........for actions speak louder than words.
