I'm Done

Love as simplicity
Love as complicated
Neither is susceptible to me
Wounded on so many levels (on so many
Reeled in and hooked by suave lovers and their
Pushy persuasion
Their smooth talk and their devious ways
Always had me wanting more-
Always made me want to stay
No matter the battering I received or
The shit thrown at me
None of that had any pull because he would
Always say ‘Sorry’
I always seem to choose the wrong somebody
To give my heart
No matter what I do, it always hits a road-block
Before it even starts
It’s either ONE hell of a ride they
Insist on
Or they don’t want the complication that
Comes with a single mom
The pain was coarse (so ruthless)
That I no longer care to find that special
Someone (to my heart it would be useless)
Now I’m like black ice inside
Bitter and hopeless
My heart couldn’t withstand one more
Hurt-one more lie
I’m done for now
No more one nights grasping for
A speck of love
No more crying over unworthiness
I’ve had enough
