YOU HAD A CHANCE

You had a chance
And did the dance
With me
For awhile
It made me smile
You did not want it
To go further
i am the kind of her
Who wants more
Than just your body
Behind my door
Sitting
Forgetting
That i need help too
Forget you
What i have to do
When i am sick
Because it is still
All there
When you awake from illness
And you cuss
Throw a fit
Because the muck
Of life is unfit
And no one really gives a damn
So you ma-mm
Take care of yourself
'Cause you cannot give without
Your health
And some hope for tomorrow
He doesn't even let you borrow
In a dream
So scream
And shout
And cuss
And pout
All you want to write here
My go-to-quiet dear
Aaahhh peace now
Aaaahhhh somehow
Take your sanity back
Go on and give
The stuff you feel you've lacked
To you and you again
'Cause in the end
You're all my friend.
