Coup de Grace

Have you ever met someone in your life? Whom after a few talks won’t get out of your head? To the point where you cannot focus, ‘Cause you’re thinking of them instead. Congratulations and condolences my friend ‘Cause you’ve struck gold, A rollercoaster ride of your life Is about to unfold. It’s a dreadful double edged sword In which overcommitting, you cannot afford. Learn when to let go, ‘Cause you’ll be left crashing and burning. Then you’ll end up wearing a façade, But deep inside you’re silently dying. Love doesn’t always have a happy ending, It’ll make you do things you’ll end up regretting. Putting effort to where it won’t be appreciated Is like forcing yourself to someone ‘till you’re hated. But in the end, when it’s all said and done You must first love yourself before loving someone. Don’t be a fool out of love Just pray to the Man up above, It is evident around you as you can see That not everything is meant to be But there is one thing that I’ve proved from my past, That good guys, really do finish last. ________________________ Copyright © Ernest Diego Tugaff 09 September 2016
