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.
