A CLICHE ROMANCE

When it came to dating I had a soul full of sorrow But all of my friends told me to hang in there When we met I felt you looking into my soul My soul laid bare with all protection lost They say absence makes the heart grow fonder And I would wait with bated breath to see you again I finally knew what it was like to fall head over heels Everything’s coming up roses was my first thought of every day As time went by our love reached new heights I thought our love could stand against the sands of time Then sand started to fall through the cracks The self-doubts and thoughts that no one understands me surfaced Your spending was also a cause for concern You have champagne tastes and a beer budget When we split there were words that were left unspoken It felt like you tore out my heart that day which I’ll never forget My heart withered like a raisin and my tears fell like rain After all no man is an island we are much more than meets the eye I know now that your beauty is only skin deep But it doesn’t do any good to cry over spilled milk My friends say time heals all wounds I guess when all is said and done I’m sitting here left with nothing but a soul full of sorrow
