Stop The Mind Games - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

You were always too wild a beast to tame
I suppose I have myself to blame
for falling into your mindless traps
Now crying and sitting on your lap

Your powerful grip
has set a spell on me
on this particular love trip
I can only now but weep

I beg of you to
Stop the mind games
I ask you gently
Stop the mind games

They have the same pattern
The are always the same
I suppose I have myself to blame

You pick up the phone
Then tell me you are speaking
to another lover for fun
Its only my jealousy you get in return

You have an excuse
each time you abuse
my trust

You have an excuse
each time you abuse
my time

You have an excuse
each time you abuse
my self respect

Need I forget to mention
You never pay attention
to me in public
Telling me to wait
For a better show in private

I beg of you to
Stop the mind games
I ask you gently
Stop the mind games

Why don't you be brave
be straightforward
Tell me what you want and what you don't want
May be something good can still be saved

    This is kind of sad, cause games are not meant to be taken out on love.

    With Respect,
