I lay next to her just watching her cry.
Heartbroken tears are trailing down her face.
I told her, "I love you", was just a lie.
The streaming tears really picked up their pace.

She's not the first nor will she be the last.
Emotional rape is my favorite game.
I recall the broken hearts of the past.
All of them cry out their heart, just the same.

With tears still flowing, I stand up to leave.
"Don't leave me", she cries, "Could I have done more?"
Their begging is the goal that I achieve.
That crumpled face is something I adore.

In the back of my mind there is one doubt.
What happens if my game should turn about?


I met a lovely woman just this night.
Just her perfume makes this jaded head spin.
This giddy joy wraps me in new delight.
I think for this one I might give up sin.

I take her home to my place for a change.
That is something I don't normally do.
She does things for me I did not arrange.
Just dumping this woman would hurt me too.

When we were done she got ready to leave.
She said, "You're a lousy lover, it's true."
"If you thought I'd stay, you're just so naļve."
"Don't leave me", I cried, "I love you!"

I never gave, I was just a taker.
Now I'm just a lonely ex-heartbreaker.

Keep on writing you are good with words but not with woman. I hope you have changed your destructive ways and learned your lesson about life and love. Sorry if this is a little harsh.

Without the turning of the tables..I would've been angry!! But, I'm not..
This was written very well and seems well thought out. Fine work, DE. You just get better and better.
