I let you wear me around like a cloak
I saw myself in you so my insecurities became invisible
And I felt that you wore me better than I could ever do
You walked all over me like a runway
And when I tried to get up and turn it around
I realized projection was a one way
Street that led to insanity
I wanted myself back and you were walking around with best parts
You were playing me while you played me
And I didn’t know who was better
If you wore a snow suit in the sunshine I’d believe you over the weather
And it’s like our existence was tethered
I couldn’t cut you
We had ties that seemed to bind
And we had separate bodies but we shared the same mind
You stole my thoughts
And I just used them after
We were on different pages , different books , different chapters
I was living as half of me, you were my own personal rapture
I waited for you to come and save me
Cuz this love thing has me captive
And these shackles …
Weighing me down like bricks
Is it love or are you laughing
You done making me turn tricks ?
Or am I where you park for amusement?
I was okay with torture because it was attentive
But at this point It’s useless
I’m wore out
I’m not whole
You owe me a reset button
Not sure who I am anymore
But I think you know
So let me in on the secret
Why am I last to be let in
Why do I never have a say ?
Out of all the roles in this world
Why choose me to play?
Imitation , sometimes, is not the best form of flattery. As useful as you think your love may be, when you give it all away and think someone will return it in the same, you’re wrong.
