I Sprayed Love

Like a skunk

I sprayed love

Like a monk

I sprayed peace

In your face

In front of you

And you walked away

Like I was in your way

No, I’m not a sorry lover

I am simply an admirer.

 

You ignored the flowers

Falling from above

You acted like a fool

Coming from a strange place

Where live ugly monsters

I no longer feel

That I love you

You let me down

And you gave me a frown

Instead of a smile

You’re mean and vile

I have moved on too

Since I no longer

Think and dream of you

I feel much better

I’m now a smart lover.
