Let Me Show You To The Door (Make Your Exit) - Poem by Marcquiese Burrell

So i'm unsure on what you want
when you tell me very little
with my patience wearing thin
and i can't even begin
to describe all the things i feel
but it weigh on me heavy
and will soon find a much needed release

Its now so obvious
with all the subtle signs
my heart has gotten involved
during the period
i had an interest to pursue relations
but i was a fool to
hold onto the illusion to fill
a temporary satisfaction
when nothing can quite fill this void
or distract from the pain i carry deep inside my heart

Help me understand
what your intentions were
I couldn't suffer yet another blow to the heart
talk is cheap, I was weak
Having falling prey to each word you speak
and in the process, you devoured me
like a vulture in the sky swooping down
on my lifeless body destroying every inch of me

So i'm now sure on what I want
When you played me like a fool
just know it isn't you
I can be this cruel
I don't need your idea of love
Something you're unworthy of
I don't need your idea of trust
Left my heart in such disgust
I don't need you, don't want you, not anymore
You'll see me for the final time
kiss the site of me, goodbye
Escort you to the nearest exit
Take the walk to the road
right out my life
