Playing sweet and charming

I am sorry, it is time for me to depart

I have seen the person that you really are

Yet, he wishes for me to stay

Pulling the same trick just so I stick around for another day

Knowing I wanted nothing more but to be friends

He wanted to believe I had a thing for him and I wanted to believe so too

But he unintentionally unveiled many reasons not to mess with him

Those reasons frightened me a little

But oh! he was so sweet and charming

There is no way that is him talking

So i shouldn’t stray, I said

days go by and he stresses the romance to be gave

Please, I only want to be a friend

He doesn’t like it that way

I made a mistake telling him my flaws

And leaving, made it hard

He has a piece of me and I feel strained

I can’t talk about fleeing or else, he will break

How did this get so out of hand

I should have left sooner when I saw flags and had the chance

Oh! But he has that talent of making me stay

Making me believe I was wrong to think of him in such a bad way

He is crying for me not to leave again

Don’t do it my inner conscience says

Finally the day came when enough was enough

And I left with the best reason ever convincing me those red flags I saw in him

Were proven to be correct.
