“I love you,” he said,
and I fell for it.
With all the lies I’ve been fed,
I knew he couldn’t commit.

And I fell for it
when he claimed he was alone.
I knew he couldn’t commit
once he refused to show me his phone.

When he claimed he was alone,
he began to act guilty.
Once he refused to show me his phone,
I realized an absence of loyalty.

He began to act guilty
as I questioned his disconnection from me.
I realized an absence of loyalty
when I witnessed the text from “she.”

As I questioned his disconnection from me,
he began to act defensive.
When I witnessed the text from “she,”
everything turned offensive.

He began to act defensive
as I violently shoved him away.
Everything turned offensive
once he demanded that I stay.

As I violently shoved him away,
I screamed, I trembled, I cried.
Once he demanded that I stay,
I didn’t bother asking why.

I screamed, I trembled, I cried
as I stormed out the bedroom door.
I didn’t bother asking why
he transformed into a whore.

As I stormed out the bedroom door
he froze me in my tracks.
He transformed into a whore;
I’m never coming back.

He froze me in my tracks.
with all the lies I’ve been fed.
I’m never coming back-
“I love you…” he said.
