What comes around ~goes around ...

Fool In The Dark

Ever since the day you left,
I've been hurting for such a long time.
Flooding my thoughts - Trying to forget,
Drowning in my bottle of wine.
So many tears I've shed for you,
Hoping maybe one day you'd return.
But, it looks like I've been played the fool,
And it's the fool who never learns!
~~~
You broke into my life - -
Like some thief in the night,
And you stole off with my heart!
You robbed me of my pride - -
And left me here to cry,
Like some fool in the dark!
A fool in the dark!!
~~~
All my friends tried to warn me 'bout you,
But, like a fool I wouldn't listen.
I'd laugh and shake my head - Tip my brew,
And say "You're Jealous Man! Quit Yer Bitchin'!"
But, even now, though time has passed,
I still bear the mark of my battle scars.
And I only have one question to ask,
Just Who In The Hell Do You Think You are?!!
~~~
You broke into my life - -
Like some thief in the night,
And you stole off with my heart!
You robbed me of my pride - -
And left me here to cry,
Like some fool in the dark!
A fool in the dark!!
~~~
Well,  I've played the fool up on your stage,
Along with all you're other men.
But, Now it's time to turn the page,
And get on with my life again!
And I hope one day you play the part,
'Cause, maybe then you'll know what it means.
To be left alone - - A fool in the dark,
Just like the way that you once left me!!
~~~
You broke into my life - -
Like some thief in the night,
And you stole off with my heart!
You robbed me of my pride - -
And left me here to cry,
Like some fool in the dark!
A fool in the dark!!
~~~

I somehow missed this... been tryin' to get 'em all ;) I think this one is highly relatable... a great expression of angry frustration ;)

Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.
