My Mistake
By Richard Dikeman

To travel back to that time and place
to past mistakes and pain erase
To change my doubt to certainty
To tell myself, "she loves me"

To take the anger from my heart
It did not belong there from the start
To change in whom I placed my trust

To bring back what I know now
The lies and truth and the way how,
To see the difference between the two
To stop it all from coming unglued

For love it was, this I know
But faith in her I did not show
For her friends and enemies alike
Showed me no truth and told me lies

Yet it was in them I placed my trust
Now in the end it all goes bust
Mistrust I showed her blatently
That night we ended painfully

To travel back to that time and place
To past mistakes and pain erase
To change the flicker to a flame
To fix my mistake and avoid the pain

But life continues on ahead
Leaving my heart cold and dead
Her heart has returned to whence it came
Leaving me all but slain.

For what is a man without love?

After Love comes Pain, then Love, Then Pain, then Love, then Pain..... does anyone else see a pattern here?  Oh well, can't say it's not worth it.
