Check Mate I'm Done

Sadness has over-whelmed me, I feel lightning has struck a chord. I heard your talks, Like you didn't even think I can hear you. We were married once, Thought you were happy that I was becoming your wife. I was wrong! We had three beautiful children, And with each birth I had I thought you were happy, But again, I was wrong! Now you say you haven't been excited over something in a long time. So that tells me you have never been happy, You feel miserable beyond repair. In this life now, I was wrong to think that making a family for you, Would excite you. It makes your mind more tormented. I was wrong to think you would care or even show love, Now I'm Done! There's no turning back. I tried it your way, Played your pitiful games, Now it's my turn, Check Mate, I'm done, Mama didn't raise no fool. No more crocodile tears for you. Sadness has over-whelmed me, My tears weigh heavy on my heart. My love I had for you, Once upon a time ago, I thought I was your Queen. And you were my King. But all you have done is mad me pay for all your mistakes. And then some. You have created chaos and mischief, And now I'm here to tell, My story it shall be. My life is hell, I've burned in the firry pits for so long. My time to blossom like a rose. as for you, I'm done! You had your chance, Chance after chance. Its check mate my dear, I win, You lose. Game Over!
