Love Means Loyalty

Longer than twenty years it took me Of steadfast faithful simplicity Voicing reassurance, for her to truly get that I’m not you Explains just how much you put her through. Mister important ladies man, so dashing Everyone else takes a back seat; hearts are for smashing Another looker, another ********, another member of the ex-wife collection Narcissism is a shameful condition, but you have zero Shame, else you’d loathe yourself as I do, mister hero. Love means loyalty, putting your loved ones first Owning your impact, not rationalizing your thirsts Your choices all--good, bad, and worst And keeping your damned pants on when your Lady is not around for you to ignore Too late now, for the sake of your daughter’s heart You’ll never fix it, but that’s no longer your part. 4/22/16 For Contest: Loyalty Sponsor: Broken Wings
