No more the fool

entry picture


We've both travelled far

We've journeyed long,

You've whistled your tune

I've sung your song,

I've listened intently,

Attended when asked,

We've played our lovers’ game

I've settled for last,

I've danced to your beat,

Recited verse,

You've needed a fool

I've come off worse,

I've lived for and loved you

Throughout the abuse,

Cried silent tears for you,

Authored an excuse,

Witnessing my life

Through others’ eyes,

I figured veiled love

Was your disguise,

You never needed me

Except as a stool,

You never wanted me

Except as your fool,

But no more.

Comes across like a Hank Williams ballad. 😎
