Book Excerpt

The Break-Up

They say “if you study long you study wrong”

There is no time to waste no time to wait

But I found that it is a “thin line between Love and Hate”

I disregarded the warning signs and the clues

Damn I’m tired of getting this bad news

I guess karma is saying boy “you paid your dues”

She had me thinking we were coasting

Come to find out she had mixed emotions

Wow that chick had me real open

Did I have some wrong preconceived notions

Did I move to slow or too fast

Forgive me for even trying to make it last.

Thought you were my everything I would for you do anything

The first time I swallowed my pride

Yet bitterness you did keep inside

The second time I did not know what to do

Still my heart and soul you never knew

This is it its over and I’m thru

Cause I know that there’s life after you.

For a minute it seems were one

Then suddenly our honeymoon was done

Fussing, fighting, moaning and groaning

Stressing and strifing all day and all night

Guess you couldn’t hide your spots, lies, and stripes

We came a long way and gone so far

But now I’m getting out this damn car

When were together I stayed true

But now I now there is life after you

You really had me going thinking we were going a certain way

I’m just glad it was only 8 months because I’m good today

You didn’t give me no explanation

I guess you still want to play

I guess you forgot about tomorrow as we lay

You did some good but lies wiped that all away

Cant trust, listen, or love you cause I cant believe nothing you say

Don’t have to give me the cold shoulder

I’m gone and I’m glad that its over
