Coward – T.O.W.
You showed your true face and lost your voice
When things got difficult, when we were exposed
You made a clear but cowardly choice
Throwing me aside, you felt the need for me to be disposed
Only days before you had declared your flaming love for me
How I was woven inseparably into your being
That a life without me in it could not possibly be
And the next thing I know you are fleeing.
The act of a coward not owning up
To what he has done and how he feels
Of fear what the outside world will see closeup
Terrified of losing his reputation so taking to his heels.
Knowing he will not ever come back
Breaks my heart in so many ways
Still in love with that coward who’s heart is black
Hoping my heart will again see better days.
