Puzzle Piece

I thought I had found you
My missing puzzle piece
One that finally fit in the spot
And completed me

You became my world
My solid comfort
You said loving me
Was worth all the effort

Cradled up in your arms
Made me feel so safe
The way you kissed me
Made me want another taste

I felt so content
Whenever I was with you
You were just so intoxicating
With every little thing you do

I started to get the feeling
That something was wrong
When I went out with you
I felt like I don't belong

Your once charming smiles
Now seem dull and bland
My heart no longer races
When you reach to hold my hand

For awhile I believed
I was the one to blame
But then I broke through
And found out your twisted game

You lead girls to believe
That you're their missing piece
Wrapped up around your finger
You get them an unexpected release

It took time to remove you
Followed by painful surprises
Seeing your mismatch puzzle piece
With a set of freshly opened eyes

The spot where I thought
You were the one to fill
Might look empty now
But I know it never will

There is someone out there
My real missing puzzle piece
Who truly fills the spot
And forever completes me
