Lying In Love - Poem by Christina Simmons

Didn't he used to love... - saying he'd always be there for me?
It seemed until she came along that is...
Even then he said: I'll be back

Maybe I thought more of him than he of me
Since convinced into loving her he's changed?
His eyes are no longer for the girl in me
When he's with me calls out her name
I'm hurting so bad...

Was his pillar of strength
He was intrigued by a laughing hyena
Moved on up in the world because of a smiling face
What did I do to make him stop wanting me...

Is she mimicking... pretending to be a woman
he can depend on - rely on completely
Like a weakling he has fallen hook line and sinker

How could someone else rock his world
When I was always the one to make him smile.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This was to help me get over being left high and dry and feeling like a fish out of water - for another woman. He was abled to carry on as though nothing was wrong whilst I wallow in self pity. Delved for comfort addicted to various source. Guess love I had for him was an addiction.
