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.
