Rightly Earned

Rightly Earned

Concerning him I'd just as soon forget.
Each curse you curse the man he's rightly earned!
My role in him and you's my worst regret.

Not hate, you say? Then something worse, I'd bet -
when you're not gagged, your true belief's discerned.
Concerning him I'd just as soon forget

each dodge of his, each trick, each lie, each threat,
which leaves us precious little, as we've learned.
My role in him and you's my worst regret -

for what that's cost your life my own's in debt,
with his life breathing naught worth being yearned.
Concerning him I'd just as soon forget

that you were once his toy and I his pet.
Fuck him and fuck each fucking bridge he's burned.
My role in him and you's my worst regret.

(Are my thoughts on this theme explicit yet?)
You gave him all, shit's all the man returned.
Concerning him I'd just as soon forget -
My role in him and you's my worst regret.

    perception – no such thing as reality.

    I’ve been in that place too, caught in a net made of lies, woven with deception. And as a result, I trespassed on another woman’s life. I have my regrets, too. You’re right. It is best to move on and forget he exists. But I will say that I’ve learned from this experience. I’ve learned that friendships with other women are to be treasured and nurtured.
