Favorite Quote:
Your never a man when your eyes seem to shun all the truth in the sky.

I thought of you while I was out at sea
Only you
And all you did was
Cheat, cheat, cheat

The man you said you would marry
Is now left her standing in the hall
Empty house, all the pages torn out and gone

The sound of you is like salt to my wounds
I never even had a clue
Because all I did was think of you
Only you

All I feel now is numb
Abandoned sea where did I go wrong?
My life, my wife
It’s all gone

These bottles won’t heal my pain
I’ll break them just like you broke me
All I can do is think of you
Empty house
The epitome of abuse
All alone
This is my bitter recluse

I wish I was stranded out at sea
You loved free
You never even thought of me
Because all you did
Was cheat, cheat, cheat

As a sailor I’ve seen it all
Empty ocean
And the break of dawn
But what I never ought to think
Was how you would sleep with another
A man to you
But to me a thief

Bodies entwined as you dreamt
My heavy heart that was once cement
Crumbled like paper on the ocean floor

The maps were torn out
I lost my direction
My life, my wife
It’s all gone

This is beautiful. Took the thoughts I once had and put them to words.
