WHEN LOVE IS TOO MUCH YET NOT ENOUGH

I did not know suffering I knew not pain I knew nothing of love Until you came into my desperate life You came and conquered my heart; I fell hard But soon after I found lonely nights without you Your absence taught me a lesson I needed to learn I woke up from the stupor you made me fell into But I woke up and said hell no! Why couldn’t I make you happy? Why was my undying love not enough? Unanswered questions best left unanswered that time will stretch to where it will but I don’t care You with desirable painted faces and wonderful bodies None of you can touch me now My spirit is made of Superman stuff! Your lies and deceit wrapped in charm won't turn my head anymore Your lies drove me from hope and the fake love you offered But you taught me the game well But ladies, there are no flunkies here Patsy doesn’t live here anymore Fly away, fly away from here Look for easy marks elsewhere but not in my brain Let those who want your candy be taken in by your blue eyes and your sweet red smile that beckons Your need for incessant sex stifled my breath As your nimble knowing fingers roamed over my boys I melted There must be in star-filled eyes some other-man child That you can snare in your perfumed clutches You were good, my sweet, too bad I was not enough for you Your fires burned too hot for me to douse You sought others to squelch that ardor but now I understand your need to find an equal mate to quench your insatiable desires I began feeling the depth of the pain you shared with me Much greater than my urgency ever was And knowing your torment as you leave I wish you well and hope you find the respite you desperately seek.
