One Shot


I know I lied to you.
I know I deceived you.
I did it deliberately,
But I am not the least sorry.
I did it for your sake.
I did it to save your face,
So it will be easier for you to walk away.
Go now when I can still let you.
Go to the place you belong to.
Leave me here to wallow alone
In self-pity you do not need to know.
But if you need me you are welcome to go back,
Just be sure it is I you truly want.
Cause there will never be another chance.
I only have this one shot at life.

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
