A little background information: This poem is about my son's "father," who was a liar and a cheater. We are no longer together. #singlemompower #ilovemyson
At night, I like awake
because I can’t close my eyes
little did you know--
your love’s got me hypnotized.
But you’re breakin’ promise after promise,
tellin’ lie after lie
been tellin’ you for a minute
you’re runnin’ outta time
before it’s goodbye,
then babe it’s too late.
All of these excuses got me questionin’ our fate
but wait, I aint said I’m finished yet.
We’re not just breakin’ up because you played a stupid bet.
so don’t you head toward that door.
You ain’t leavin’ outta here ‘til you’re weepin’ on the floor.
And with that, lemme tell you somethin’ to bring you down another level,
instead of you playin tricks like the devil,
tryna get me outta your life,
tryna prove you’re like an innocent Cinderella
It’s not one thing poppin’ up,
it’s one thing after the next
And before you know it--
You gon be tryna catch your breath.
‘Cause you think you’re so game
with your little smart phone and hundred contact names.
but really—you are lame.
And THIS was all a game.
Too bad I won the grand prize,
he’s fallin’ asleep beside me,
lookin’ into his Momma’s eyes.
