take me out of the jocks game

Sat, 11/04/2017 - 02:26 -- lbp5

you played me the same way you play baseball
you treat me like crap
i got my hopes up
you threw me curve balls
just when i think we're in it for the win
you play mind games
things got muddy
at times you had to fall in the dirt to stay safe
it didn't last long
you quit
and
gave up
i struggled to figure out why
when it struck me
you quit what you love
because love requires effort and work
you quit things of passion because you wanted something easy
that's why you quit
and
that's why you left
