“Staged Love”

Standard

seems you practice when no ones around

 

but your rehearsed deception knows no bounds

 

speaking from anger and frustration, proud of how it sounds

 

but you speak not from the weighted heart that pounds

 

while their pride ache, you find it easy to lounge

 

you perform your play on their emotions

 

where you claim devotion amongst the drama and commotions

 

that are provoked by your motions, that you rub in like lotion

 

acting out a bond that you where never fond of

 

building on pain that you later call tough love

 

you are a gushing wound needing to be plugged

 

you burn out the strongest with your deceit

 

cattle hearts like sheep isn’t that right Lil Bo peep?

 

desire the power of multiple men at your feet

 

like there is nothing righteous about even the dreams you keep

 

your love and affection is for stages a vague story with torn pages

 

your missing morale rages, prepared to bow before taking any vows

 

living only in a series of “nows” destroying and toying with those

 

you captivate with your performance and you hack away at their endurance

 

there will come a time when pain will be of thine own script and your superiority stripped

 

and your life will be as painful as the harsh words of your lips
