lesson learned... i share it with you


Sometimes I feel like
I’m flying high above the rainbows
The idea of you here
Has been fuel to make me stronger
but then I give away my power
then I give away my soul
I wanna share everything
I wanna give you my all
But that’s not the way it’s sposed to be
true happiness comes from the depths of me
I can no longer put in your hands my love for free
The one that ends up paying is my own entity
And it goes - Up down Up down Up ….

I had you spinning on this pedestal
I worked so hard- to see you as my guide
Not let down my guard
But when I let you in
i was sure it’was meant to be
no one’d ever challenged me the way you challenged me
and then youd go away for months at a time
my life would develop - grow up through my rhyme
when you were out of sight
you were still on my mind
Perfect relationship – avant garde - kind
but then one day i woke up at our side
Beneath the dragons wing seemed warmer than I’d like
-And I knew this wasn’t where I was supposed to be
I always knew your purpose in my life’s totality but
I ignored my own heart, my intuition
And nobody but myself’s to blame for all the impositions
You’d always been honest- straight from the start
Lost in illusions, thought I’d learnt this part – and it goes:
