baby did a bad thing {redux}

.

.

i knew she was gonna break my heart

but once i touched her

there wasn’t a fuckin’ thing i could do about it

.

she took my heart between her teeth

and shook her head back and forth

like a dog with a bone

.

only i was the one

slavering at her feet

willing to do anything….

a. n. y. thing.  she wanted….

to convince her of  my undying love

.

all in the split-second

of  eternity

that it took to touch her arm

.

but she spit out my heart

whispered  “maybe another day”

and walked away

.

then baby did a bad, bad thing

.

.

i wasn’t enough….

she wanted the adoration

of  every man in the bar

and was willing to do

what they wanted to get it

.

i felt like cryin’

knowing she’d go that low

for a standing ovation

.

i lit a cigarette

caught her eye

then turned and walked away

.

i knew i’d find true love again

somewhere else….

another day

</3
