I don’t want to love you,
You’re destined to make me cry.
I don’t want to need you,
You’re inevitably going to lie.
You’ll tell me you love me,
Explain how I make your life complete.
Though when I am away,
You’re seducing every other woman you meet.
I have heard the lies before,
I have learned to read the signs.
I do not want to relive this,
I am placing my walls and drawing the lines.
You will not hurt me, no not this time,
No matter how hard you try.
I will no longer allow it,
I refuse to allow you to make me cry.
