You let me have my way. You gave me no reason to stray.
I let you think I had no care. In truth, I was just scared.
You asked me if I would give love another chance.
I responded in kind by giving you none.
You knew what I was up to. So you waited with bated breath.
When I didn’t show the next night, you must have known it was time to let go.
Only this time, I was on my way. Just a little too late.
The storm in your eyes said it all that cold night.
