There were times you called me vindictive names,
Said so many uncalled for things that hurt.
You played so many emotional games
And with my friends you did shamelessly flirt.
Was there ever a time I lost my shirt ?
Despite your disdain and cruel intent
Your burning barbs and maleficent bent
Most steady, steadfast was my love for you
So t'was the cruelest cut when you went
Forever deserting a love that's true.
