I Want Them To Know - Poem by Jessie Lima

It was a pretty love story
When we were happy
When we had glory

There was no one else in this world
Only you and me
But you left wanting to be free

Remember our first kiss?
By the lake, late afternoon?
Was there something amiss?

I want them to know
What happens when you do the wrong choice?
When you don't hear that little voice,
Yeah that voice inside your head.

You left and wanna come back.
I will tell you what,
Forget!

I want them to know you had the chance
The chance to own my heart
But from the start,
You were never very smart.
Were you?

good-bye,
a tooth for a tooth-
an eye for an eye.
