Can I Say Something?
Can she tell you how lonely she’s been?
Those nights of wishing you didn’t leave;
Days of pulling out her hair, destroying her weave,
Those same braids you paid for, but only after writing her ‘please’
Can she share how cold its been?
Explain how her pillow replaced you between her thighs,
How screams of freed passion have become deep and trapped sighs,
How something soft and cold at warm and strong now tries?
How she uses your messages to identify male lies?
Can she use make-up to explain a break-up?
How her tears play the role of facial cleanser,
How her lip gloss tastes sour without your kiss?
How you stripped away your loving foundation, left her nothing to build on,
And oh! How she smells, fear is now her roll-on?
I understand you, its not your fault too,
It was something that wasn’t like before and that scared you
You should have told her how you felt but sometimes words won’t do,
So you left, all torn inside cos you thought it was best
Meanwhile, you were nothing but a victim of fear
She might not want you back but at least talk to her,
Don’t allow fear keep you trapped, get it out of your mind,
Better make corrections now while there’s still time,
I know so much because the face you see in the mirror is mine.
