Why

Sometimes I wonder what it was that I saw in you, was it your gentle smile or the simplicity in the things that you would do you were always so calm and kind, so rare it seems today, you didn't mind being different and didn't care what people would say I found my self attracted to you the moment that we met, the way you made me smile I will never forget My friends thought it was crazy Love at first sight and my heart led me to believe that you were Mr.right All the illusions I made up in my mind were so far from the truth I just wish I could have known it at the time It wasn't easy being so close yet so far away not knowing how you felt kept me in bondage every day One day my prayers were answered you said you'd like to try I thought we would be together for ever but that was just a lie I guess I was just a toy, another game you liked to play, I wish I had known you never planned to stay All the empty promises you led me to believe, How could I have been so foolish and easily desieved I wish I had known that you wanted to be free but your the one who stole my heart and now holds the key How can you live knowing what you did you didn't act like a man you acted like a kid I guess i have come to realize love is a fairy tail and know matter how hard I try I always seem to fail Why do some win at love and others loose I guess I am unlucky in the men that I choose I think this time I will stay by my self and take my heart and put it on the shelf so no one can break it or try and steal the key of the broken pieces of a heart that was once free.
