untitled

You’re so great and you don’t even know, 
what’s it going to take for you to finally let him go? 
You deserve only the best, and he’s giving you much less. 
You say he loves you, and I believe it’s true. 
But if he really does, why does he do these things to you? 
I can see it in your eyes, you’re happy, but tired of all the lies. 
You’re with a man you have to share, and for you that sacrifice is just not fair. 
You gave up everything and abide by his rules in his twisted game. 
But has he done the same? 
No, he still has a wife with his last name. 
I’m not one to tell you how to live, but i’m tired of seeing him take and all you do is give. 
Two years has been way too long. I’m surprised you’re still letting it go on. 
Just think, you have half, and he has two and that’s just simple math that even I can do. 
He’s not giving you his all and every time he says he’s going to leave her, it’s just a stall. 
He’s going to keep you for as long as he can and only hurt you because he’s that type of man. 
I support you and whatever you do, I just know you deserve better than what he gives to you.
